You Determine Raffle Success

To be a success, our 22nd Annual Charity Raffle needs the cooperation of every club member. If you donít know the basics, it goes like this: We sell only 200 tickets (at $125 each) for a reverse raffle (last ticket out wins). Prize money is $8000. Each ticket includes two dinners during a fun evening at Pinehurst Country Club. For this to work, every ticket must be sold (itís not as tough as you might imagine - just ask Nick Morrone). We also need donated door prizes, which are distributed throughout the evening. You can solicit them or donate then yourself. Your advertising in the program also adds to the profit (or at least reduces the expense). Along with the raffle, we will have a silent auction for the benefit of the ALS Foundation (Lou Gehrig's -**01-ease). The date is April 23, the place is Pinehurst, the time is 5:30 pm on, the contact for information is George Hannes. Your help is very important.

Convention Approaching

April 21, 22 & 23 are the dates for the Mountain West Regional be held at the Hotel DTC (formerly Hilton South), it wonít get any closer or more convenient. Attending a Regional Convention is a fun, educational and enlightening experience. Recent changes now allow us many delegates so you can participate in the voting. The club will pay your registration- sign up to go. It is definitely worth your time. Meals are included.
