A poker run is set for Mills River next month, with proceeds benefiting Blue Ridge Honor Flight.
The Veterans of Valor Poker Run takes place Sept. 14, beginning and ending at Bold Rock Hard Cider in Mills River at 72 School House Road. Motorcycles and car clubs are welcome.
Proceeds will benefit Blue Ridge Honor Flight, a program that flies veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit their memorials.
Registration begins at 9 a.m. The first rider will be out at 10 a.m., with the last rider out by noon. A celebration afterward will take place at Bold Rock from 4 to 6 p.m. with live music from the Stipe Brothers.
The event is free and open to the public. Cost for the poker run is $25 per hand and $10 for a second rider. The best hand wins $500, second place wins $300 and the worst hand gets $200. There will also be a $500 50/50 raffle.
