This past weekend over 70 boats again converged in Norfolk, VA for the Powerboating for a Cure Poker Run raising money for the Susan G Komen of Tidewater charity for the fight against cancer. This years event put on by the Mid Atlantic Powerboat Association raised over $40,000 dollars. The actual check for $40,000 was presented during the event and more money was raised by the return of all the event prize money as well as the silent auction. This event is the second largest fundraiser for this great charity.
The run itself was another fabulous ride all over Chesapeake Bay. The Friday Fun Run stop was again hosted by Mark and Nancy Tuck with the usual crash swim in the neighbors pool and a generous southwestern food feast that they had catered in. The water conditions were great for the up the bay to Blue Water Marina for the lunch stop with delicious fish tacos and another pool party.
The Sheraton Hotel Waterside in Norfolk served as the host hotel for the event that included dock parties on Friday and Saturday night with the usual catered refreshments and hors d’oeuvres serve to the boats on the dock coordinated by Bob Veith of the wheeling committee.
Special recognition and thanks goes out to Miss PBN Brittany Dunn for representing Powerboat Nation and coordinating the start of the run! She has promised more pictures are coming!
