A family struggling with a medical crisis shouldn’t have to choose between being near their loved one and having a place to sleep. Patients who need to stay close to the hospital for treatment or recovery shouldn’t have the added stress of expensive hotel bills.
Molly’s House relieves the stress and financial burden that come with a medical crisis. All proceeds from this event will help further our mission to support patients receiving medical treatment by providing temporary, affordable accommodations for them and their families.
The title of this event was named in honor of Wayne Sloat, a savvy local businessman who supported Molly’s House. Wayne loved his Harleys and had an appreciation for good, loud music. He was an established businessman (owned several NAPA stores) and often referenced concepts from the book "Purple Cow." After his passing, friends and family created this annual event to honor Wayne while supporting his favorite charity.
The Purple Cow Poker Run
Last year, we had over 200 bikers participate in the poker run (not bad for the 1st year). Bikers were lined up out the door to receive their player’s scorecard (to be stamped at each stop) and map to the poker run course. Bikers must go to all five stops on the poker run course before a deadline. At each stop, the biker hands the player’s scorecard for stamping and then draws a card from a full deck of cards. An official marks the player’s scorecard with the rank and suite of cards drawn at each stop.
The Purple Cow Backyard Party
The last stop is at Treasure Coast Harley-Davidson, where judges score the cards using standard poker hand rankings and declare winners. The participants receive entry into the backyard, where live music, food trucks, cash bar, and raffles await. The public may purchase admission to the party (regardless of participation in the poker run). Last year, we had an additional 100 people join us.
To participate in the Purple Cow Poker Run online tickets and registration is $20. Last-minute registration at the door is $25.
Participating in the Poker Run automatically grants you entrance into the Backyard Party at Harley-Davidson.
If you would like to attend the Purple Cow Backyard Party only- tickets are also $20 online or $25 at the gate.
