ABWA Poker Pedal is coming up fast

By Staff | Mar 30, 2011

On Sunday, April 17, the Sanibel-Captiva Chapter of the American Business Women’s Association (ABWA) will be sponsoring its ninth annual Poker Pedal Fundraiser.

By visiting seven of 15 island business sponsors and collecting a playing card at each spot, participants will try to build winning hands — the best poker hands win great prizes like a week-long stay at an island accommodation, jewelry and, of course, a new bicycle.

Pre-registration is $30. Applications are available at Bank of the Islands, Cottages to Castles, Tom Lauwer’s Tax and Accounting, Three Crafty Ladies and the Island Nutrition Center. Registration on the day of the event is $35.

Hop on your bike or rent one of ours — walkers are welcome too — and try to pick a winning hand. All participants will receive the ABWA’s 9th annual Poker Pedal t-shirt.

An “After Pedal Party” will be held at the Sanibel Community House, located at 2173 Periwinkle Way.

The Sanibel-Captiva ABWA Poker Pedal is sponsored by Bank of the Islands and Barrier Island Title Services . All proceeds benefit ABWA’s scholarship fund.
