Despite inclement weather Saturday morning, the members of the Dawsonville Civitan Club came out to the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame ready to host the annual Ride for a Reason poker run. The event consists of motorcyclists winding through Dawson County, stopping along the way to pick up playing cards until they have collected enough for a poker hand. It’s the main fundraiser for the civic organization. “We’re trying to grow this again,” President Dianne Hansard said. “With just the few of us, we make a lot of money and we spend a lot of money, and it all goes back to the county.”
