On Saturday, May 14, Friends for Friends will be hosting our first annual Motorcycle Poker Run!

The 100 mile Motorcycle Poker Run will start and finish at the Union Fairgrounds, stopping in Tobey’s General Store in China, Bowen’s Tavern in Belfast and Trackside Station in Rockland. The ride wraps up with a BBQ lunch, music by DJ Andy, prizes and more!

This Motorcycle Poker Run is an organized ride, stopping at checkpoints along the way drawing a playing card to complete their poker hand. At the end of the Poker Run, the best poker hand wins the grand prize!

Proceeds of this event will benefit families of Maine – nominated by members of Friends for Friends. To become a member, just make a donation. Friends for Friends was created to have communities come together as one and host large benefits to raise money for Maine families. To date, we have purchased a bed for a woman with cancer, rebuilt a snowmobile for a man who lost his arm in a snowmobiling accident, purchased a month’s worth of groceries for a family in Scarborough, installed a washing machine & dryer into a rebuilt closet on the first floor of a home, built a wheelchair ramp, supplied two families with heat (K1 and wood), collected truck loads of toys for Toys for Tots, cleaned the yard of an elderly senior in need and lots more.

With over 100 members and just over a year old, Friends for Friends is helping people all over Maine.

We hope to see you Saturday May 14th at the Union Fairgrounds, Union Maine. Registration starts at 8am and kick stands up at 9:30am sharp. Cost is $10 per bike and $5 BBQ lunch ticket. There will be Joker prizes at each stop, including gift certificates to your favorite restaurants! Rain date Sunday, May 15th. To pre-register, call 975-2110 or email us at
