AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY FUNDRAISER PIGGYBACKS FRIDAY'S POOL NIGHT 3-10pm show-up

Kim and her family are having a final "hurrah" for the American Cancer Society, piggy-backed with our regularly scheduled Friday night Pool League.  This "hurrah" will start at 3p.m.  This particular Friday is our regularly scheduled league night off, so this Friday there is an OPEN-HOUSE show-up window of 3p.m. to 10 p.m. for the evening.  You can come and go, as you please this evening, stay 10 minutes or close the bar up at 2 p.m. , or  most likely something in between.  No rules for this Meet-up time-wise.

Invite friends and family, co-workers, anybody, as this Meet-up is open to EVERYONE.

 The way this will work , is that Kim will have prizes arrayed out on a table with little boxes in front of each prize.  Raffle tickets are $1.00 apiece or 6/$5.00.  You choose the prize(s) you would most like to win and put your ticket stub in the little box(es) of the prize(s) of your choice.  A ticket is pulled out of each little box, and that person whose name appears on that ticket, is the winner of that particular prize.  Once those tickets are drawn, and the prizes are awarded, ALL the leftover tickets go into a big pot and the name pulled out of that pot is the winner of 1/2 the money collected.  You need not be present to win. Kim will bring the prizes belonging to any absent winners,  each Friday for the next 2 weeks following this Meet-up. Phone numbers will be part of the information given on the back of the ticket.  There may be an hourly 50/50 as well. There may be some t-shirts , for sale too.

I think it would be fun to wear any t-shirts we have in our personal possession with Fund-raiser American Cancer Society wording on it, to this Meet-up to help "advertise".  I have a few extra t-shirts I can loan out, as a matter of fact.  

PLEASE NOTE, KIM CAN USE SOME PRIZES TO RAFFLE OFF.  ANYTHING YOU WANT TO DONATE CAN PROBABLY BE USED.  Some ideas that were thrown out there, were "re-gifts", gift cards you won't use, hand-crafted items, small business coupons (free hair-cut, coupons for reduced price services, free lesson, etc.).  You can give any donations to Kim or Brad, or myself at any Meet-up before this Friday.  Contact Kim C. through the website for more info on that part of it. You can call me for more info as well. [masked]-8889.  Thanks to everyone in advance for their help. XOXO LAURA

    Thanks to everyone who attended, and to all who consistently donated to the 50-50 raffles up to and including the day of this event. On a grand note, most of the monies stayed within our club. All but one "pot" went to a member of our group for the 50-50s preceding this event. The 3 50-50s held the evening of the actual fundraiser all went to group members, so we luckily kept it "in the family". A good portion of the prizes went to our members, as well. Thanks to Kim and Brad and her family for "giving back".

    Great ideas here for this worthwhile fundraiser. So many people I know have been affected by different types of this disease at some point of life. I and my sister, close friends and relatives are cancer survivors.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
