Griczin family poker run fundraiser scheduled; trust fund also started
Friends have helped Spotsylvania’s Griczin family set up a poker run fundraiser to help them deal with expenses caused by the April car crash that seriously injured Katelyn Griczin.
The teenager is still recovering, but has been able to start classes at the University of Mary Washington.
The family and the driver of the truck that crashed head-on into Katelyn’s car have insurance, but bills have still cost them thousands. Marjorie Griczin, Katelyn’s mother, said the family has filed for bankruptcy.
The poker run will be held Saturday, Oct. 13. It costs $25 per hand. The best hand wins an iPod Nano and gift cards will be raffled.
The poker run starts at Printpack in the Lee Hill Industrial Park with registration beginning at 9 a.m. The run starts at 10:30 a.m.
Each player gets a sheet with all 52 cards on it. The first card will be drawn at Printpack and the other four at stops along the way to the final stop at Hooters off of U.S. 1 in Spotsylvania.
After Printpack, players will make four other stops:
- Catt and Custom Leather.
- Renegade Classics.
- Big Daddy’s Leather.
Once all participants reach Hooters, the best hand will be determined and prizes handed out.
The family also has set up a trust fund to help Katelyn. It is called the Katelyn M. Griczin Trust. Anyone wishing to donate to it can do so at SunTrust banks.
