Get out your driving gloves and your dancing shoes -- and maybe even your Santa hat.

A series of events this weekend in Rock Spring, Ga., is a chance to dance to the oldies, rev up the Harley for a poker run or shine the chrome on the Edsel while raising money for charity, the Al Millard Memorial Stocking Full of Love of Walker County. Organizers call it a chance to play Santa in the summertime.

Two events are scheduled Sunday, Sept. 1, another on Monday, Sept. 2. All take place at the Walker County Civic Center, 10052 N. Highway 27. More information is available by calling 706-638-1909, ext. 276.

Trophies will be given for the best poker hand, as well as oldest rider, best club participation and a few surprise categories. Door-prize and 50/50 drawings will be held at the end of the ride.

Cost is $25 for the first hand, which includes a T-shirt and barbecue sandwich plate; $5 for each additional hand or barbecue plate; $10 for each additional T-shirt.

Rugged Cross Riders of LaFayette, Ga., will provide support for the ride.

• Sock hop: Sunday evening's entertainment will be a sock hop starting at 7 p.m.
