- Posted on 03/01/2019
The Lake Chelan Boating Club would like you to participate as a Sponsor and/or Donor to our fund raising, raffles and door prizes during the 12th Annual Lake Chelan Poker Run.
We have a variety of levels of participation which will allow you access to the spectators and participants in the Poker Run. Last year we had over 60 boat crews with more than 200 total crew members. Additional spectators join us for breakfast at the start and dinner at the finish and at the Friday Boaters’ Street Show in Manson. If you have participated before, we thank you, and would like to discuss how you can work with us most effectively this year contact Bill Jarr, LCBC Sponsorship Chairman firstname.lastname@example.org - 215-206-6574
What is the Lake Chelan Poker Run?
Teams meet at our clubhouse next to the Mill Bay Boat Launch. The event starts at the Lake Chelan Boating Club docks. Then team boats travel to five stops on Lake Chelan. An envelope with a card is collected at each stop by the crew. The teams hold on to these cards, unopened, until the final stop is reached. Here all cards are returned to the Poker Run staff and their cards are tallied and the winner is determined by the team with the best five card poker hand.
What does the Club do with the funds?
The proceeds from our entrance fees, meal and door prize tickets are supplemented by our sponsors and those who provide items for door prizes. Each year we turn to our local businesses and friends of boating to help support our event. Our sponsors make our event the success that it has been and enables us to contribute more each year. Because of your support we have been able to significantly contribute to over 2 dozen local charities and activities.
Supported Activities Include:
- LCBC Scholarship Fund
- Sponsor Boater Safety Classes
- Kids’ Water Safety Class
- Free Kids’ Swim Lessons in Manson Bay

Benefits for Sponsors and Door Prize donors:
Sponsors and those who donate door prize items are key to our success and provide those businesses exposure to participants and fans of the 60 plus Poker Run teams and 200 plus team members, plus another 50 who join us for dinner, plus spectators. Large Event Banners are on display at all of the events listed above. The Poker Run magazine is available to participants and spectators alike.
The magazine is printed like a commercial publication, so it makes a great keepsake as well as being the guide for the event. It includes the history with photos from past years, magazine art and a behind the scenes look at how the Poker Run works. All sponsorship and door prize donations offer opportunities to promote your business to a group of engaged visitors. Sponsorships start at $50 for a quarter page!
Those who purchase sponsorships are recognized in the ways outlined in the attached Sponsorship Registration. Sponsors and Door Prize donations are recognized at the point of display and also by the announcers and DJ’s at the time of award and during the day’s activities.
We look forward to your participation in this year’s Poker Run.
