Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation
Benefiting the Army, Marines, Navy, and Air Force
The Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that provides assistance to our Wounded EOD Warriors and their families in the form of financial relief. The resources provided by the Foundation to the wounded and their families are above and beyond the budgetary constraints of the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs. We believe that families are an integral part of the healing and rehabilitation process and strive to keep them together during the most difficult of times.
It is inevitable that in some way or another you know someone that is serving or has served in one of the four branches of the military. Together we can give back to those who risk their lives to serve and protect our country.
All funds raised by Royal Flush Rallies will go to Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation to help our hero's.
The Poker Run
The Poker Run is a car rally that involves an underlying poker theme. There will be five predetermined destination points during the course of the rally. Each point consists of a short break where your team will receive a poker card along with directions to the next rally point. The best five card hand at the end of the event wins. Prizes/Gifts will be given away to the top three hands of the day. Some previous gifts have consisted of detailing certificates, gas cards, and detailing baskets.
Co-Pilots are recommended for the rally. Turn by turn details, Mileage, and Toll Amounts for each stop will be listed on your direction sheets.
Each driver and passenger will be responsible for signing a waiver prior to participating in the rally. Driver and Passenger waivers can be found on our website. Fill them out, print them and bring them with you to the rally. If you are unable print out a waiver we will have several extra available the morning of the event. If we do not have a signed form you will not be able to participate.
Donations can be made in the form of cash or check. Checks can be made out to the "Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation". All donations will be collected during registration prior to the start of the rally.
