East Valley Raffle

By Debra Smith

The East Valley Chapter will hold an exciting raffle, with a $1000 cash Prize to be awarded. The raffle is a way for ticket sellers to earn money to be put towards a state or national convention. For every $100 worth of raffle tickets that an individual sells, $50 Will go towards the individuals cost of attending a convention. Monies raised from this fund raiser will not only benefit the East Valley Chapter, but will be shared with the state affiliate as well.

Or, maybe your specialty is creating a beautiful afghan, or hand crafting a vase out of wood?
