The Chloe Randolph Organization is hosting a poker game on September 23
In March 2019, Chloe Randolph was found dead in the Henderson apartment she shared with her husband, Mahmoud Abdelkader, and their son, who was 9 months old at the time. Police found her body in the closet with clear signs of head trauma and a “deep wound to her neck.” Her husband was arrested and charged with her murder. He admitted to the crime a few weeks later, and after several reschedulings and rescheduling of court dates, he pleaded guilty to that charge along with two counts of tampering with evidence in September 2021. He is currently in prison serving a 20-year sentence.
Inspiration is born from tragedy
Determined not to let Chloe become another statistic, her parents and close friends saw her tragic death as a catalyst to help others who find themselves in dangerous relationships. A major step in their journey took place in October 2020 with the opening of the Chloe Randolph Organization’s Advocacy Center in downtown Henderson.
Like any organization, it takes money, and lots of it, to carry out its mission. Funds are being raised through grants, as well as through fundraising events such as the organization’s annual golf tournament, and its new event, the “Ride a Hog, Save a Victim” motorcycle poker race, which will be held on Saturday (September 23, 2023).
“Ride a Pig and Save a Victim” Poker Play Information
The trip will kick off the organization’s “Domestic Violence Awareness Month,” which runs through the entire month of October and will be very different from the group’s poker tour that took place in June. The journey will begin at the organization’s new advocacy center at 327 Washington Street in Henderson and will end at Firedome Pizza on Barrett Street. Open registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and all bikes are scheduled to be rolled out at 10:00. The event will also include a completely different course than the one used during the summer. The organization has not yet revealed the route, and says it may remain a mystery, according to the event’s Facebook page.
Registration is $20 for the first rider, $10 for an additional rider, $5 for an additional poker hand, and is not limited to motorcycles only. Jeep clubs and car clubs are also invited to participate.
