The Desert Storm Poker Run is underway and to kick off the event local boaters and poker run participants from afar turn up to support the 2nd Annual “Krusin’ for Kids” event. Under-privileged and special needs children and adults were given boat rides around Lake Havasu. 18 volunteer boaters took their special guests out for a ‘Kruse’ around the lake, starting at the Nautical Beachfront Resort/Turtle Bar boat docks, and back again to the Nautical’s pool area where they enjoyed a fun-filled day created just for them. The DCB presence was strong with 9 boats in the 18 boat fleet This wonderful ‘Krusin’ for Kids’ event was coordinated by Cherilyn Teague, Lake Racer, and New Horizons.
Great job to all involved with this wonderful event.
