To participate, motorcyclists will travel to five locations and pick up a playing card at each stop.  When participants return to the Surfside Taverns, the rider with the best hand will win a cash prize.

The entrance fee for the "poker run" is $10.  Half of the money raised will go to the Michelle Parker Search & Trust Fund.

People who do not want to participate in the poker run will still enjoy free food, live music and raffles throughout the day.

Parker, 34, disappeared on Nov. 17, 2011 -- the same day an episode of "The People's Court" aired.  She appeared on the episode with her 40-year-old ex-fiance Dale Smith.  Smith is considered a suspect in Parker's disappearance.

Smith will appear in court Friday for a child support hearing at 1:30 p.m.
