Hub City Poker Run to benefit Hattiesburg Domestic Abuse Shelter

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Hattiesburg Board of Realtors is gearing up for their second annual Domestic Abuse Family Shelter Poker Run.

The poker run will take place Saturday, June, 15, and all proceeds will go to help the shelter build a new, larger facility for its residents.

The way  the poker run works is the participants will get a card when they register and then travel throughout the day to each of the eight sponsors where they will get their card stamped. For each stamp they collect they will receive a poker card. Whoever has the best poker hand at the end of the day wins the $5000 grand prize. Second place will get $2500 and third place $500.

"This is not a gambling event, a lot of people think it is," said Caitlin McAdams, Marketing Director. "It's a chance to get everybody out in the community, going to our local businesses and then all the proceeds go to the Domestic Abuse Family Center."

Tickets to participate are $100. They are available at hubcitypokerrun.com or by calling 601-466-2805.

Last year the event raised more than $14,000 for the shelter.
