Loggerhead Water Poker Run


The 2nd Annual Loggerhead Water Poker Run Scheduled for August 29th, 2020,
Had to be Canceled

The Loggerhead Water Poker Run will be held every June, to benefit help those precious children and their families that have been impacted by cancer. The Loggerhead Water Poker run will start at 11 am and last boat in will be at 5pm. The cost per hand will be $25 and each participant will be able to buy 2 wild cards for the cost of $5 each. There will be 6 stops along the Intercoastal Waterway. You do not have to go to all of the stops to complete your hand. The event will end with your hand or hands turned in at Bucksport and participants will anchor out near our 52-foot houseboat and enjoy music until our winners for best hand and worst hand are announced. Best hand takes home $500 and worst hand $100. The pre-registration party will take place at the Boathouse from 5pm to 8pm. All participants will receive a gift with their registration. This is a family friendly event.

This event is sponsored by Cancer Heroes of the Carolinas and all proceeds will be used to support families in Georgetown and Horry Counties that have been impacted by Cancer.
