Shriners hold annual Pirates poker run

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Alee Shriners of Savannah revved up their engines for their annual Pirates poker run Sunday.

After the run, riders got the chance to enjoy a barbeque dinner, a weenie bite contest, a barrel push, music and a whole lot more.

People showed up from all around to participate in the event and they say events like these not only benefit others but they also bring the community together.

"It really brings the brotherhood of the community of motorcyclists," said firefighter and EMT Justin Langley.

"I'm out here with a good group of firefighters and EMT's and paramedics that work with Southside. It helps bring the brotherhood of that experience. That knowing that you have that support from the community and from your brothers in the line of work that you do."

Proceeds for the poker run will be given to the Shriners Hospitals for Children.
