Hogs for Dogs to aid humane society

October 3, 2008


The Lawrence Humane Society on Saturday will be host to its first Hogs for Dogs Poker Run.

Participants can ride motorcycles or drive their cars on a 50-mile ride through Douglas County.

Registration begins at 9 a.m. at the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds near 21st and Harper streets. The ride begins at 10 a.m.

The route includes stops at Wells Overlook, Clinton Lake Marina and Riverfront Harley-Davidson, 608 N. Second St.

After returning to the fairgrounds, a lunch will be provided as well as prizes for the best and worst poker hand. There will also be a silent auction for four items: a metal sculpture of a dog on a motorcycle from "It's About Time," Kansas University basketball tickets, VOX racing helmet and a Sturgis Rally package.

The fee is $25. T-shirts will be sold for $10.
