CHANDLER, Ariz. -- The Voodoo Poker Run and Ragin Cajun Fest benefiting the American Foundation for Cardiomyopathy will be held this Saturday.

Bikers will assemble at 10 a.m. at C2 Tactical and then travel across the east valley to five different places to draw their cards. The poker run will go from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The top three winners will be based on who has the best poker hand. Prizes include a vacation giveaway.

The Ragin Cajun Fest featuring food, beer, and motorcycle industry vendors is open to riders and the public for free.

The Cajun-style festival will be at Chandler Harley-Davidson, 6895 W. Chandler Blvd from 5-8 p.m.

100% of the proceeds will benefit American Foundation for Cardiomyopathy.

"This event is something I've wanted to do for a long time. I'm really excited to finally get the chance to invite the public to come and join me on a fun poker run while raising money to help our foundation continue to support our mission to bring awareness and support services to those affected by cardiomyopathy," Anthony Miller, executive director, said.

The event is $20 per Poker Run rider and $10 per additional Poker Run passenger. The Poker Run, activities at each run stop, lunch, a raffle ticket and one drink ticket are included with each ticket.
