Make history and help at Langley poker run

Motorcycle enthusiasts and fans of Elvis will gather in Langley for the annual Ride into History as they help Langley’s Gateway of Hope.

It’s one of the shelter’s key events during the year to raise awareness about area homelessess and to raise money.

Funds help the centre which not only provides emergency shelter but also life skills training, job training and more.

The Ride technically begins with a rest as people gather at the Fort Langley National Historic Site for a July 25 concert starting at 7 p.m.

Many people will bring their classic cars and sit in them to watch the show which takes place at the fort’s orchard. Admission is by donation.

Randy ‘Elvis’ Friskie is the headliner. The show is appropriate for all ages and open to everyone.

On July 26, it’s time for a hearty pancake breakfast in Fort Langley courtesy of the Fort Langley Lions at 9 a.m.

Then everyone hits the road for a three-hour motorcycle poker run which finishes up at the Gateway of Hope on the Langle Bypass. At Gateway there’s a fun motorcycle rodeo skills competition and dinner banquet.

People can register in advance online at rideintohistory.ca or Saturday starting at 8:30 a.m. at the event.
