Easter Seals Poker Run
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day second of July, repeating until July 10, 2021
“We are grateful for the popularity The NASWA enjoys and wanted to work with an organization that serves more than just our neighborhood. We wanted the benefits to extend across the State of New Hampshire and also across age and demographic lines,” says General Manager Cynthia Makris, who serves on the Board for Easter Seals. Since Easter Seals (Easter Seals – New Hampshire) helps people through the whole lifecycle, with a broad range of services for everyone, from disadvantaged children to veterans, to adults with disabilities and the elderly, it offered the perfect match for The NASWA family and its family of guests.
The Land & Lake Poker Run, presented by HK Powersports, has been an event that not only raises money but raises the summer fun level for Laconia since 2000! We have raised over $1.16 million for Easter Seals.
Boaters, bikers, drivers, kayakers—even canoe and personal watercraft enthusiasts—all join in to make the multi-faceted run an important date on event calendars. While locals look forward to the annual event, many tourists plan their vacations around it. The Poker Run has various routes and pick-up points, depending on the vehicle or vessel, which also helps make the event “weather-proof.” Poker chips are picked up and are then turned in at The NASWA Resort where the Poker Run ends and the party starts!
