The Eldorado Casino will hold its 3rd annual October Thunder Poker Run to raise money for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada on Saturday, October 10.  Riders are invited on a 150-mile trek through Southern Nevada and into California, stopping at five locations as they build a poker hand in an attempt to win a $500 grand prize.
The adventure begins at Eldorado Casino in Henderson, with checkpoints at the Searchlight Nugget in Searchlight; Nipton, California; The Pioneer Saloon in Goodsprings; Henderson Harley Davidson; and finally, the finish line at Jokers Wild Casino in Henderson.
Following the run, participants will receive a complimentary barbeque lunch while listening to the sounds of live rock music with Tranquility Base. Still up for a party after the party? Good news – Jokers Wild will host a Casino Night Party and poker tournament, starting at 6:30 p.m. and continuing well past midnight.  Classic rock band Updog will perform at the evening party.
All net proceeds from the Poker Run benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada.
