2nd Annual WSHS Poker Run Benefiting the Field Trip Transportation Fund

What’s the #1 reason why many of Washington’s school children can’t go on field trips? Is it the cost of admission? Nope. Actually, the cost of transportation is what often prevents our area’s kids from getting to supplement their classroom experience with a visit to the Washington State History Museum, where they get to connect with their local history and shared past.

That’s where YOU come in! Suit up, gas up your motorcycle, and come on down to the History Museum on Saturday, June 7. Ride in our 2nd Annual Poker Run to benefit our Field Trip Transportation Fund. This fund provides grants of up to $150 per school to assist with the cost of renting buses to bring kids to the History Museum. Last year, during our inaugural run, the event raised enough money to transport 700 kids here for field trips! Some of the kids who have visited us this school year had never stepped foot in a museum before.

Help us to increase those numbers and our impact on local kids. The ride begins at the History Museum in downtown Tacoma and makes four stops between here and the State Capital Museum in Olympia before ending at The Swiss Restaurant & Pub. Prizes are awarded for the best and worst hands. No pre-registration required…just show up the morning of the Run.
