The Support Our Troops Poker Run is in its 9th year at the Lake of the Ozarks. The charity which benefits from this fun event is H.E.R.O.E.S. Care. It's an affiliation of program partners which all work together to support military families in the communities where they live.
This group teams up with national organizations that provide financial aid, employment opportunities, and mental health care services to military members and their families before and during deployment, as well as after they get home. The Support Our Troops Poker Run has been able to donate over $150,000 to this wonderful charity so far. If you would like to know more about them, please visit Heroescare.org.
