From The Star: Some Belton residents have set up a motorcycle “poker run” run and other activities today to benefit the family of missing teenager Kara Kopetsky.
Events will begin with a 10 a.m. registration for the bike ride at Guichos Mexican Cantina on Missouri 58 west of U.S. 71. Participants will leave at noon for a 90-mile ride and make designated stops, where they will pick up playing cards. Cash prizes will be given to the riders who have the best poker hands at the end of the ride.
At Guichos, other community events are planned, including a car wash, raffles and cake walk. Public safety officials will be on hand to offer fingerprint identification for children.
There is a $10 entry fee for the poker run. Guichos will offer a Mexican food buffet for $10, with 10 percent of the proceeds going to the Kara Kopetsky fund. Family members have said they are using money from the fund to help with awareness and search efforts.
