Meridian, Mississippi A local organization hosted a fundraiser on Saturday to prepare for a group of motorcyclist that will be visiting the area.

The Meridian chapter of "Run for the Wall" organized a "Poker Run" on Saturday in order to raise money for the riders that will be passing through Meridian. Those who took part in the event each received one poker card at designated check-in points throughout East Mississippi. The rider with the best poker hand wins. Organizers tell Newscenter 11 that Monday will be a busy day, full of events.

Meridian has been a stop for the bikers for 13 years now and this is the 25th anniversary for "Run for the Wall."
