Benefit poker run at the Yella Beak

A benefit poker run is planned for Sept. 28 to generate much-needed funds for a Buckley couple.

Registration begins at 11 a.m. at Schafer's Bar and Grill. The route includes stops at the Firehouse in Orting, Carbonado Saloon and the Firehouse Pub in Buckley, before ending at the Yella Beak in Enumclaw.

There will be high-hand and low-hand winners, plus a 50/50 raffle.

Entry cost is $15 per bike or $20 per couple, with cars charged $10 per person.

Ian and Dee Karpen married in September 2010. First, she was in an auto accident; then, on July 28, they were in a motorcycle accident that injured both. Due to their injuries, neither can immediately return to work.

Also planned is a benefit yard sale, beginning at 8 a.m. Sept. 29 at the Yella Beak.
