Hartwell Lake Poker Run
The Hartwell Lake Poker Run, benefiting Meals on Wheels, began in 2010 and has proven to be the premier lake event of each summer. Over 150 boats participate in a day of sun and fun on the water, and raise over $50,000 each year to feed homebound elderly and disabled residents in Anderson County. Boaters from all over the southeast will gather on Friday, June 7 and Saturday, June 8, 2019 at Big Wa-ter Marina. A morning boat fun run and night time sponsor party featuring a live band and live auction will be held on Friday. On Saturday, poker run day, boaters will visit five different scenic locations on Hart-well Lake to collect coupons. At the end of the day, everyone will return to Big Water Marina and the coupons collected at each stop will be placed in a drawing for the prize money offered. An after event party Saturday night, featuring a live band will follow the drawing. All in all, it’s a weekend featuring time on the beautiful waters of Lake Hartwell, great food, and great music!
Meals on Wheels-Anderson
Meals on Wheels-Anderson is dedicated to meeting one of the most basic human needs: hunger. Along with preparing and delivering over 420 hot, nutritious meals each weekday, we care for the homebound elderly and disabled residents of Anderson County by checking on their safety, well-being, and overall health. The relationships which develop between our volunteers and recipients are fundamentally based on the care and concern of one person for another. Meals on Wheels feeds the body and soul, providing recipients with important daily nutrition and the opportunity to remain in their own home. The result is en-hanced health, independence and quality of life.
When Meals on Wheels began over 40 years ago, it was truly a grassroots effort. The people of Ander-son County saw a need and came together to meet that need. Then and now, donations, grants and money raised through fundraisers are our sole sources of funding. In a nutshell, we rely on you, our com-munity, and those who sponsor and attend fundraisers. Your generosity helps us reach out to and feed those who need us. Ours is truly a program of neighbors helping neighbors. Thank you for considering sponsorship of the 10th Annual Hartwell Lake Poker Run. All proceeds from the event will be used to ensure that as many homebound elderly and disabled residents of Anderson County as possible receive a hot meal and warm smile each day.
