We have ladies looking for back seats - got one? :)

Home for Our Troops - building houses for those who have served.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjMl7I6GBbU

Come to Jan's Lounge, 9222 Greenback Lane Orangevale, CA 95662, between 9-11 AM on June 14, 2014 for Sacramento area's best Poker Run. We have an awesome route planned through the foothills on some great winding roads, stopping at popular water holes, restaurants, and ending up back at The Boardwalk for a great party. There will be prizes, 50-50 drawings and $1000's in merchandise donated by local businesses to be raffled off, all to support a local veteran through Homes for our Troops. The poker run is only $25 and 95% of all proceeds go directly to build a home for our local veteran, Sgt. Alex Jauregui, here in Davis, CA.

See the video below to hear what your donation will personally mean to Sgt. Alex Jauregui....

Homes for our Troops has a most remarkable Charity Navigator rating.  An outstanding 95.3% of all funds collected goes to its cause.

As of March 2014 Homes for our Troops has built 166 homes. 

                      Let's help them build one more!

We'll meet at Starbucks, Livermore and ride to Orangevale directly.  Here's our ROUTE to join the Illuminati Moto Club for their run and party.  

Meetup at 8:30am at the latest, earlier to visit or have coffee - but do not be late.  Mandatory Safety Talk promptly at 8:40am - miss the talk, please meet us in Orangevale.  Arrive with a full tank of gas, our first and only gas stop is in 95 miles, shortly before we arrive for this fun time to support Sgt Alex Jauregui of Homes for our Troops!  Tax deductible too!

Save your appetite - The Hindquarter House is donating a breakfast buffet at the first stop, only $5 and 100% of the proceeds go to Homes for our Troops.

Sponsored by the Illuminati Motorcycle Club California Chapter and our Friends member, Troy.   

Thank you, Troy for this wonderful opportunity to have so much fun doing so much good!

    California bikers united Saturday to join us in our Poker Run, we raised over $6,000 for Homes for Our Troops and we were also able to honor SSgt Alex Jauregui, who has truly sacrificed for his country. We plan on making this an annual event so we can honor more veterans like Alex. A special thanks to Wounded Veteran Run (Courtney Keys), and their supporters for making an extremely generous donation! Thank you dearly for those that assisted us in supporting our troops. It is we a heavy heart that we also ask everyone to pray for the Ironworkers MC, who had several riders go down when there was a collision with a car. With our deepest respect and prayers we mourn for your loss and pray for the recovery of those hospitalized.

      Update, we ended up raising 10,000 due to a last minute donation of over 2k from a very nice lady,

    I'll be camping right in the middle of all that riding that we did up there next month on the American River for 5 days. I'm thinking of trailering my bike? - It was a wonderful day for a wonderful cause. Great to see y'all again & meeting Venkat, Earl & Graham. Thanks for leading the ride Deacon. I hope you're not playing with all your toys by yourself Bets? ;-)

    Hi Folks,
    It'll be chilly in the morning and 85'- 90' during the afternoon. You may want to bring water to have along the way. See y'all bright and early tomorrow morning :)

    June 13, 2014

  • Venkat N.

    Does anyone want to ride together from San Jose to the starting point in Livermore? My friend may join us from Fremont.

    Hi Folks,
    Thank you for joining the Homes for our Troops Ride! I was awestruck when I researched this terrific organization. How cool that we can have a fun day riding, do so much good, and write it off on our taxes too!

    A 90 minute ride may be a bit ambitious for our bio comfort after the morning Starbucks. I've added a gas stop 1/2 way there. If everyone fills up at this stop and is good to go 125 miles (the run is 75, included) we can skip the 2nd gas stop next to the Poker Run start. If you're tank isn't good for 125 miles drop me a line at: [masked]

    Looking forward to seeing y'all at Starbucks at 8:30am (or earlier to chat more :) this Saturday!

    I want to thank everybody for coming, your patriotism is greatly appreciated! We have 44 raffle items available plus a 50-50 cash drawing, and cash for the best poker hand. I will have my truck up there so if any bay area rider wins anything, I'll be happy to bring it back for you. Look forward to seeing everybody there.
