TEAM celebrated Punta Gorda’s Founders Week
on December 7, 2016 with an old time BBQ & Poker Run
. More than fifty eager participants converged on the Charlotte County Community Foundation building on Sullivan Street. From there they walked, ran or rode to five historical sites around downtown Punta Gorda hoping to “earn” a winning poker card. At each location they were asked a question and had to search for the correct answers on the property. Once the correct answer was provided, each participant was given a sealed envelope with a card in it. All of the players then returned to the Community Foundation building to open their envelopes and discover their “hand.” The highest poker hands received prizes. Everyone enjoyed a delicious BBQ dinner catered by McCurdy’s BBQ.
