The sole purpose of our non-profit organization is to raise money each year for the Nevada Veteran's Coalition and other veteran's programs. We provide an opportunity for our community to celebrate their loved veterans, past and present, while also getting to experience our beautiful Nevada backyard.

The Fern 45 Poker Run
Annual Donations

First Annual Fern 45- 2015

$1,200 and a New Laptop to Nevada Veterans Coaltion

We were expecting 40 close friends and family to participate in raising money for the Veteran's...and just by word of mouth, around 100 people showed up to support and ride trails in our Nevada Backyard. We were pleasantly surprised to see how many people were willing to donate their time and money to help support our Veterans. 

2nd Annual Fern 45- 2016


Nevada Veterans Coalition

Our event has grown! We have now started something we cannot stop! We are officially going to make this an Annual event! The monies donated to Nevada Veteran's Coalition will be used to ensure there is a wreath placed on each grave-site at the Northern Nevada Veteran's Memorial Cemetery. 

3rd Annual Fern 45- 2017


 Nevada Veterans Coalition

WOW. We are incredibly grateful to be able to raise more and more money for our Veterans who have given their time and lives in order for us to be able to do this. Our donation is given to the NVC so they can continue to support the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery and other Veteran's programs throughout the year.

 Veterans Upward Bound-TMCC

We want to thank ALL of our donation and sponsors this year. The efforts of all of our donations/sponsors is what makes this possible. The Veterans Upward Bound Program is a free educational program for qualified, honorably discharged veterans who need support in preparing for success in their post-secondary education and training. 

5th Annual Fern 45- 2019


 Nevada Veterans Coalition

We hope our appreciation for all who have donated their time and efforts does not go unnoticed. We are planning to be able to raise enough money next year to help Veteran's in need year-round. All of our donation this year will go to the NVC so they can continue to support our Nevada Veterans. 

Fern 45- 2020


Nevada Veterans Coalition

Unfortunately we all  know what happened with this years event. However, we did sell some sweatshirts and fundraise enough to donate $5,000 to the NVC. We are excited for what  2021 brings! 

6th Annual Fern 45- 2021


Nevada Veterans Coalition

This year was, by far, our biggest year yet! We introduced new vendor booth options and that was a success (with new changes to 2022 coming!) We have plans to donate to more Veterans organizations throughout the year. We have already began meetings and changes for 2022 and look forward to making this event run smoothly and successfully!
