SOMERSET, NJ - The Cabinet Makers Association (CMA), working with participating exhibitors of the 2014 Cabinets & Closets Expo, will host a Poker Run in which attendees can have fun and win valuable prizes.
The Poker Run will take place during the CCCE 2014, April 10-11 at the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset.
What's a Poker Run? How does it work?
CMA Executive Director Dave Grulke explained: "This event is open for both CMA members and general attendees at the Cabinets & Closets Expo. As an attendee of the expo, you will want to stop at a participating exhibitor’s booth. The exhibitor's Poker Run dealer will deal you ONE playing card. As you go around the show floor and stop at other participating booths, you will be dealt additional playing cards.

You then register your hand at the CMA's booth for a chance to win prizes. Prizes include gift cards, merchandise certificates, tools and plenty of other fun items. Even if you don’t have a very good hand, we’ll have drawings for all who participated in the CMA Poker Run," Grulke said.
Grulke said the holder of the high-hand for each drawing time will automatically win. All other hands will be placed in a prize drawing. There will be at least one drawing per day; winners must be present so they can take their prizes home the same day.
