A poker and motorcycle run will kick off Saturday morning, May 14, at 9 a.m. at the Wigwam Tavern in Scappoose. The day-long event is a fundraiser for Randall Children’s Hospital in Portland, started by the family of Dustin Bowers, who died last year at the age of 20, after living with hypoplastic left heart syndrome.

The event will feature live music, a rummage sale, food, theme basket prizes and a motorcycle and poker run. Organizers will donate all proceeds to the children’s hospital. Registration for the run begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, with riders departing at 10 a.m. Cost is $10 for the first hand and $5 for each additional hand of poker.
