The Quad City Powerboat Club is excited to present their 2nd annual Poker Run to benefit Make-A-Wish® Iowa and Illinois Chapters. Make-A-Wish® grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Last year this event helped raise $21,000 for Make-A-Wish® and they hope to exceed that amount this year with your support.
