The Pirates of Lanier Charity Poker Run is a fun and charitable event on Lake Lanier, just north of Atlanta. Participants go from one designated stop on the lake to another by boat. At each stop, they will pick up a playing card until they have completed all of the stops and have five cards. When they return to Sunset Cove the poker hands are evaluated at the "Casino," then scored and the best poker hand wins the grand prize. This year, the cards will be in sealed envelopes and are not to be opened until the player returns to the "Casino." Our event is also "Pirate" themed and we give out trophies to the best "Pirate" dressed boats and crews. The only purpose of the event, other than to have fun, is to raise money for the children in need throughout Atlanta and surrounding communities.
