A look back at our Cars & Coffee Poker Run -

A look back at our Third Annual Cars & Coffee Poker Run. This was one of the biggest events we have ever had. Our last event was hosted at Regal Pinnacle in Turkey Creek. We had over 200 cars participate in the Poker Run and well over 400 cars for our Cars & Coffee. Our Poker Run consists of roughly a 5 hour drive. This ride is on some of the most scenic routes in East Tennessee. The route usually includes roads such as the Dragon and the Cherohala Skyway.  We have our Special Edition of Cars & Coffee and Poker Run one time a year to help raise money for our local Charity's. We have helped raise money for  CCFA as well as Variety The Children's Charity of East Tennessee. We host our events not only to give car enthusiasts a nice drive, but to also help our community.
