Come join the fun at the 5th Annual Dinghy Boat Poker Run, organized and run by Providence Marina. This event will be raising funds for the Providence Animal Rescue League!  

Where: 17 Bridge St, Providence, RI 02903
When: Saturday, June 1st (Rain Date June 2nd)


Details: Participants will travel to various stops along the Seekonk and Providence River gathering playing cards in sealed envelopes. Upon return to the marina participants will present their cards. There will be a cash prize of 20% of event ticket sales for first place. ALL other proceeds from tickets, raffles and t shirt sales go directly to PARL.

Any type of dingy is allowed up to 13 feet long, there are no restrictions on power type or horsepower. (Please inquire if your dinghy does not meet these specifications and you are interested in joining) This is not a race, the winning hand wins.
