8th Annual Osceola Police Dept. MAKE-A-WISH POKER RUN The 8th annual Osceola Police Department Make-A-Wish Motorcycle Poker Run will be held on Saturday, September 21, 2013. Both motorcycles and cars will meet up at Osceola High School, located at 2750 W Semmes Ave, at 9:00 a.m. to gather and parade through town.
The OPD fundraising partnership with the Mid-South Chapter of Make-A-Wish began locally in September of 2006. Since that time, over $102,000 has been raised within Mississippi County to grant 14 wishes for children ranging in ages from 3 to 15. Last year alone, the OPD raised over $20,000 for Make-A-Wish.
