25th Anniversary Hot Harley Nights Poker Run

25th Anniversary Hot Harley Nights Poker Run 


Each year, the Hot Harley Nights Poker Run is a crowd favorite! 


We decided to change things up a bit-- instead of the Poker Run only lasting one day, we’re having it go ALL WEEKEND LONG! This will give participants three days to enjoy the ride, hitting up each stop at their own convenience.There will be 10 location options; participants will choose 5 of the 10 to visit in order to complete their card. 


Whether you want to complete the Poker Run in one day or spread it out across multiple days, the beautiful rides and amazing prizes make the Hot Harley Nights Poker Run such a fun way to raise money for Make-A-Wish. 


An entry fee of $39.99 includes, not only admission to the Poker Run, but a t-shirt and a poker chip.


J&L Harley-Davidson is the homebase for the Poker Run: pick up your card from the dealership, visit five Poker Run locations, and return your card back to J&L. Upon dropping off your card, you will select your poker hand and be entered to win prizes, including: a 5,000 mile service at J&L, a $100 J&L gift card, or a set of tires from Western Powersports. (And bragging rights, of course!). 


Return your card to J&L Harley-Davidson at the following times:

Friday 5pm-8pm

Saturday 12pm-4pm

Sunday 9am-4pm
