Hosting America's Top Charitable Poker Run

Lanier Partners of North Georgia is a 501(c)(3), tax-exempt, national non-profit charitable organization. We raise money to help children in the North Georgia area. These are children with special needs, children that are underserved, and children that are suffering from cancers and related diseases. Through our efforts and through our giving, we try to make their lives a little better.
We raise money by holding events that center around Lake Lanier and the surrounding community. Sales and sponsorships from these events provide us with the means to help the children.
Our primary event is the Annual Pirates of Lanier Charity Poker Run.
