Annual Eric Sutphin Memorial Poker Run

Posted: Updated:

Members of the community are set to pay tribute to Eric Sutphin, a Montgomery County Sheriff's Corporal who was killed in the line of duty.

Part of the money that is raised during tomorrow's Memorial Poker Run will go to scholarships for the children of law enforcement in our area.

Lt. Mark Hollandsworth has been taking part in this event since it started, and says it's a special way to remember Sutphin.

"He made the ultimate sacrifice for the community," Hollandsworth says. "This is a way we try to keep his memory alive."

The large ride starts at 10 a.m. Saturday morning at the Texas Roadhouse in Christiansburg.
