The 2022 Pirates of Lanier Poker Run made Christmas bright for the holidays. During December, the group distributed checks to its four children’s charities.
“Each of our charities received their donations right before the holidays,” said Sheridan Renfroe Bazemore, incoming president of Lanier Partners. “We were so pleased to be able to make these donations to these children’s charities and look forward to continuing the Poker Run tradition.”
Checks were presented to: Boys & Girls Clubs of Lanier, $25,000; Camp Twin Lakes, $20,000; Camp Sunshine, $25,000; and Edmondson Telford Child Advocacy Center, $5,000.
The group has named new officers and board members for the coming year.
Bazemore is the president and Dan Jape will serve as vice president. Board members for 2023 include Rob Davidson, Dan Gordon, Ronnie Gordon, Bruce Longmore, Brenda Musone and Bucky Perry.
The group is moving its dates for this year’s Poker Run to the fall. They have set the weekend of September 8-10 for the event, which will be headquartered at Margaritaville at Lanier Islands.
