The Kelleys Island Make-A-Wish Benefit Swim and Golf Cart Poker Run was August 6 & 7. However this year, Cindra swam and Jeni kept her company alongside in a boat, because Jeni had an unfortunate fall and shattered her elbow.
The 3 hour swim for Cindra was a little hairy, as she took in some water with 4-6 foot waves, but Jeni helped her get back on track and finish the swim. There was a record 403 hands dealt on the Golf Cart Poker Run and another record, with 70 Make-A-Wish kids on Kelleys waiting for Cindra & Jen.

They will still be taking donations for awhile, so even though the swim is done, you can still donate.
