  • The Widow Sons Masonic Riders are no strangers to holding poker runs for a good cause.

    Their most recent event to benefit Ashley Isenhoward, the young girl who underwent heart surgery to remove a tumor and received a diagnosis of a rare form of cancer, raised a record amount at $5,605. The total included money raised through the cost per rider, purchase of raffle tickets and several other donations.

    It was not necessarily a Masonic event, said Tom Andresen, they were just doing it.
