The Ocoee Police Department would like to thank all those who participated in the Ocoee Founders’ Day 13th Annual Poker Run Nov. 1.

The run is a fundraiser to raise money for the police department’s Holiday Toys for Kids in Need program. All proceeds go to this annual toy drive. Despite the chilly weather, there were about 40 participants in this year’s event. 

The Best Bike award went to Chad Shafer with a 2001 Honda Goldwing Trike, and second place went to Jeff Green with a 2003 Harley Heritage Soft Tail. 

On Dec. 18, program will begin distributing donated toys to pre-registered children in need. Last year, this program helped about 500 children.

Registration will continue through Friday, Dec. 5. See below for registration information. To register, you must be an Ocoee resident and have a valid Florida driver’s license of ID card; proof of residency (a city water bill); and a birth certificate for each child (6 months to 13 years old only). Bring this information to the Ocoee Police Department, 646 Ocoee Commerce Parkway. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. There will be no registration on Nov. 27 and 28.

For more information or to donate for the program, contact Sgt. Mireya Iannuzzi, at (407) 905-3160, Ext. 3015, or [email protected].
