The LEAD program is sponsoring a Poker Run and Red Dirt Concert, June 11, at Medicine Park, Okla., to raise funds in support of State Question 777, Oklahoma's right to farm.
"This is a family-friendly event that will be fun and educational," Megan Albright, AFR adult education coordinator, said.
The Poker Run participants will start at 1 P.M. in Medicine Park, a historic resort town near the entrance to the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge in southwest Oklahoma. Tourists from around the world have long been attracted to the vintage cobblestone resort with a history that dates before statehood.
A poker run typically attracts enthusiasts on motorcycles, antique vehicles and other unique modes of transportation, who must visit various checkpoints, drawing a playing card at each one. The object is to have the best poker hand at the end of the run.
