Red, White, & Back the Blue
poker Run & music Festival
April 23, 2023
We held our 3rd Annual Red, White, and Back the Blue event on Sunday April 23rd at Bert's Barracuda Harley Davidson and the OCC Roadhouse and Museum in Pinellas Park, FL. It was an absolutely beautiful day, and over 60 riders showed up for the poker run in the morning. The awesome music line-up kicked off at noon with Southern Express, followed by Big Brother. We gave away over $6,000 in raffle prizes thanks to our generous sponsors. This was the first time we did a silent auction for some of the more expensive items, and it went well too. There was a motorcycle demo put on by a collaboration between Tampa PD, Largo PD, and St. Pete PD. As usual, their amazing skill showed through, and we are blessed to have them protecting our local communities.
None of this would have been possible without the support of our sponsors Replay Guitar Exchange, Toyota of Tampa Bay, Fran Haasch Law Group, People Empowering and Restoring Communities, the WaWa Foundation, and Mastercut Tools. We also appreciate all of our community partners and vendors who showed up to make it an awesome day. I hope we honored the sacrifice of all of our local first responders and veterans, and we raised $12,000 to support our programming to help combat PTSD and suicide. Thank you everyone!
