Nearly 500 bikers geared up for a poker run, designed to help Zoie Thompson and her family raise money. This was actually the second fundraiser they've done for the family, the first earned 14-thousand dollars. The goal for today's fundraiser was to raise 30-thousand. Organizers say all money will go towards a home that'll meet all of Zoie's needs.
Organizers hope construction on Zoie's new home will start sometime this month, they want to have it completed by Thanksgiving.
