The Veterans of Valor Poker Run to benefit Blue Ridge Honor Flight will take place on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 10 a.m.

The event begins and ends at Bold Rock Cidery in Mills River. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and is $25. First riders will go out at 10 a.m with final riders to be out by noon. The ridge will travel along the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway.

Motorcycles and car clubs are welcome. There will be a free end of ride celebration at Bold Rock from 4-6 p.m. with live music and prizes. The celebration is open to the public.

All proceeds will enable our Veterans of Valor to fly to Washington, D.C. on a Blue Ridge Honor Flight to visit their memorials and return home with lasting memories.

Established in 2006, Blue Ridge Honor Flight’s mission is to transport America’s veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials dedicated to honor the sacrifices of themselves and their comrades.
