Poker run benefits nonprofits

OCEANSIDE — More than 90 motorcycle riders took off from Kennedy’s Custom Cycles in Oceanside on March 12 to join up with hundreds of fellow bikers on a benefit poker run sponsored by Biggs Harley Davidson in San Marcos.
“We do a lot of community service,” Bill Kennedy, owner of Kennedy’s Custom Cycles, said.
During the run riders followed a map to five stops and drew a playing card at each stop to form their poker hand.
At the final stop at Biggs Harley Davidson in San Marcos, there were prizes for the highest and lowest hands.
There was also a bike show with live music, food venders, retail booths and nonprofit groups.
Event proceeds went to Rock to Stop the Violence and Bikers Against Diabetes.
Rock to Stop the Violence works nationwide to bring communities together to stand against violence and domestic abuse through rock ‘n’ roll music, art, and fashion. 
The parents of Amber Dubois were said to have attended the event to help bring awareness to stopping all forms of violence.
