Local Organizations host Poker Run to support Fallen Deputy

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

Kickstands will go up on Saturday as the Masonic Motorcycle club joins Set Free Ministries for a Poker Run that will benefit the family of Fallen Cascade County Deputy Joe Dunn who was killed last week in the line of duty.

Dewey Goering treasurer explains why he was compelled to honor the deputy

“We just saw the news on how tragic that was and I myself work for the county and knew Deputy Dunn so I went to my club and asked if we could change the beneficiary of our run from to Joe Dunn's family this year.” Goering said.

The event will take place on Saturday starting with registration at Big Sky Harley-Davidson located at 4258 10th ave at 10 am.  The run will make stops in Belt, Stanford, and Fort Benton.

Participants of the run can pay ten dollars per hand for up to 5 hands in the poker game and all proceeds will go directly to the family. Cars are also welcome to attend. At the completion of the run there will be food provided as well as a chance to participate in several raffles for cash prizes and the opportunity to win a free motorcycle. The run will make it's final stop at the Moose Club in Black Eagle.

”When we lose a member of that brotherhood it's a devastating loss to the community and I can't think of a better way to support the family and the sacrifice that they made then to do something like this.” Goering said. For more information visit the events Facebook Page.
