It’s all about the BVI Community!
Upon first conceiving the Leverick Bay Poker Run as an annual celebration, one of the purposes was to eventually help benefit charities with a sizable amount of funds and improve quality of life for all BVI residents. As the Poker Run launched back in 2002, we simply aimed for fostering a feeling of community through a fun activity and hoped it would continue to grow and gather enough support to keep going through the years.
Now entering our 18th year, excited and humbled by the great success of the Leverick Bay Poker Run, we are proud to announce the bestowed amount to charities continues to increase year after year due to the many people and businesses that support us. For 2018, we expect an even larger participation given the new raffles and opportunities to win, a development that will also help increase the bequeathed amount for BVI charities. Chances to win a cash prize are better than ever and we encourage everyone to join this year's run.
At this time, we've been able to confer over $100,000 to local charities and expect this trend to keep on for years to come thanks to the unwavering support of the boating community and all those who enjoy a good nautical activity. Some of the local charities who've benefited from proceeds include The Virgin Gorda Diabetes Association, the Virgin Gorda Animal Rescue, the Virgin Gorda Track Team, The Virgin Gorda Cars Association, and the Red Cross, among others.
