A CHECK FOR $2,684 was presented to Shiawassee County Veterans Affairs and Services recently at Rivals Taphouse and Grille in Corunna. The funds were raised during the Veterans Charity Poker Run on Saturday, Aug. 26, and collaborative event hosted by Rivals and Vehicle City Harley Davidson of Flint Township. The event began at Vehicle City with registration and breakfast, and ended at Rivals with a party that included prizes, giveaways, and a silent auction. Many local businesses and organizations contributed items for the silent auction, and the Shiawassee County Veterans Affairs and Services will use the funds to purchase an additional van to transport local disabled veterans to and from appointments.

  The check was presented to Noah Woodbury (fourth from right) of the Shiawassee Veterans Affairs and Services by (from left) organizers Jeff Apsey, Janice Apsey, and Lisa Cantu; Naz Cantu from Vehicle City Harley Davidson; and Jamie Youngston, Brandon Youngston and Matt Pilliod of Rivals Taphouse and Grille.

  Organizers called the charity poker run “a huge success” and intend to make it an annual event.
