PARC relies on fundraising to be able to continue serving those with developmental disabilities.
The 2019 Poker Run is held in memory of Ed Mercure, a former Plainville resident, who died in a motorcycle accident in 2010. Mercure was a retired West Hartford police officer and an avid biker who was an active community volunteer. His parents, Bob and Jane Mercure, were instrumental in founding PARC.
The run leaves at 10 a.m. with the last vehicle out at 11 a.m. The route will include numerous stops throughout central Connecticut. The Chip's pancake truck will be on site in the morning. Upon return, riders and guests can join in the festivities by having lunch, enjoy music and a few surprises. Cars and motorcycles are welcome.
Rain date: Sunday, May 5.
