AFS Sponsors Charity Event for Shriners Hospital for Children

CHESAPEAKE VA., August 23, 2010 Accelerated Financial Solutions (AFS), a Chesapeake, VA, financial services company, was one of the main sponsors of the 2010 Jammin on the James Poker Run, a Richmond Powerboat Association fundraiser for the Shriners Hospital for Children.

Jammin on the James, rated as one of the nation's top ten powerboat power runs, raised approximately $25,000 for the Richmond Shriners Hospital for Children.

"Being one of the sponsors for this Shriners Hospital fundraiser means a great deal to AFS," says Josh Tawes, CEO for AFS. "This is the third chairty event we've particiapted in during the past six months, and the third time we've been able to do something for the Shriners' Hospital."

Over 100 powerboats participated in Jammin on the James, including one piloted by Tawes and crewed by COO Anthony Stile. "FLying down the scenic James River on a powerboat is an incredible experience, an even more exhilarating knowing our contributions will help quite a few children," says Stile.

In a power run, boats follow a set route with stops along the way. Participants receive playing cards at each stop, and at the runs end, the crew with the best poker hand wins. Prizes are also given to boats arriving first at each stop.

THis year's Jammin on the James Poker Run started at Jordan Point Marina in Hopewell, with stops at Jamestown and Smithfield Station. The last stop, Tidewater Yacht Marina and Portsmouth Renaissance, was also the site of a banquet and awards presentation ceremony.
