The Pirates of Lanier Poker Run is a three-day event that raises money for two Georgia-based children's charities - Camp Sunshine and Boys and Girls Club.
This pirate-themed event is massive on every scale, beginning on July 14 with the Meet and Greet Casino Night and Texas Hold'em Poker Tournament and the Grand Hall hotel. On July 15, the 'Cheeseburger in Paradise" raft-up takes place on the lake prior to registration for the poker run later in the day.
A staggered-flagged start begins the poker run on the morning of July 16, followed by a captain's meeting. The last card stop is at Habersham Pointe, two first-place winners are awarded - one for the "natural hand" winner and the other awarded to the "buy-in" hand winner. After the trophy presentation, there is a fireworks show and the usual partying at the end of every large event.
