June 21, 2014 - Some bikers are doing their part to help raise money for six local animal rescue organizations.

More than 150 bikers took part in the first ever Erie-area Critter Cruise poker run.

The bikers left from the Harley Davidson Shop this morning, and made many stops throughout the region before coming back to Erie.

Coordinators said they didn't expect so many people to sign up for this event, but they say they are happy to be able to raise awareness about the needs of so many small animals in the area.

There was no set fundraising goal; however, officials tell us they are pleased with all the support from the community.
