YOSEMITE LAKES PARK — The Sierra Shadow Casters Motorcycle Club hosted the Sierra Moonshine Poker Run on Sept. 7 to raise money for Station 10, located in Yosemite Lakes Park and serving a wide mountain area.
More than 30 bikes participated in the run, which took the riders through North Fork, around Bass Lake, into Oakhurst then on to Knowles before heading to the Blue Heron/Yosemite Lakes Park Clubhouse where the riders were entertained by award winning band “Cut Shot.”
The riders enjoyed a prepared lunch by the Blue Heron of pulled pork or chicken accompanied by coleslaw and many other side dishes.
After lunch, there was a raffle of approximately 30 items and a Silent Auction. Raffle prizes included a Stihl chainsaw donated by Tim Harmon, owner of Choppers in Oakhurst.
The Sierra Shadow Casters donated the Poker Run’s proceeds — $2600 — to the Station Volunteer firefighters on September 21st.
The funds will be used to help purchase and upgrade gear for the first responders.
The Sierra Shadow Casters wish to thank everybody who came out to ride, including special raffle donors Tenaya Lodge, Narrow Gauge Inn, Homestead Design and Sierra Telephone.
And most of all, thank you to all of the riders who show up to support the Sierra Shadow Casters in our efforts to raise funds for the mountain communities.
