The Borden Light Marina Cigarette Poker Run has become a major attraction on Fall River's Waterfront. The 13th Annual Poker Run is scheduled for Saturday, August 24. The boat race starts and ends at the Tipsy Seagull in Fall River, but there are stops in East Providence, Warwick, Newport and Bristol, Rhode Island along the way. All of the money raised goes to charity, the Make-A-Wish Foundations in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Organizer Nicole Lund visits Townsquare Sunday this week to explain the Poker Run and how you can get involved.
