Rick Harrison is bringing back his annual poker run.
The hit television show “Pawn Stars” has been a Las Vegas staple since 2009. Still going strong, one of the stars of the show is using his fame for a good cause. Rick Harrison has announced he will lead his 9th annual “Pawn Stars Poker Run” in October.
The run will happen on October 21, 2023 in Las Vegas and proceeds will benefit The Hundley Foundation. The mission of the nonprofit organization is to improve the lives of children and families in need. The organization focuses on the health, wellness and education of its clients. Especially those in disenfranchised communities.
About the Hundley Foundation.
The Hundley Foundation was started in 2019 by NFL quarterback Brett Hundley and his sister, Paris Hundley. And since then they have been dedicated in their focus of four main pillars. Epilepsy, raising awareness, mentorship & education, and giving back to the community.
About the Run.
The “Pawn Stars Poker Run” will raise funds for The Hundley Foundation to continue their mission. Registration for the run will start at 9:30am at the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop on Las Vegas Blvd. The run itself starts at 10:00am and will include five stops through Las Vegas.
Stops include the historic Pioneer Saloon in Goodsprings, NV, and the Porchlight Grille on West Sahara in Las Vegas. Las Vegas Harley-Davidson will also be joining the run for the first time. The final stop will bring the riders back into downtown Las Vegas to Pawn Plaza.
During the 5.5 hour run, Harrison will lead the riders through each checkpoint, where they will get a poker card. At the end of the run, the riders with the best and worst hand will get a prize. The rider with the best hand will get $2,000 & the rider with the worst hand will get $1,000. Many other prizes will also be awarded.

After the last bike gets to Pawn Plaza, there will be a celebration party. Where riders and guests will enjoy a live band, raffle, and catering by Rick’s Rollin’ Smoke BBQ & Tavern. To register for the run, visit Eventbrite.com.
