The Buffalo Boardgames Meetup Group Message Board › An idea to help Huricanne Katrina victims

An idea to help Huricanne Katrina victims

Buffalo, NY
Post #: 56
As some of you know I am active with my church, All Saints Episcopal Church. The Western New York Diocese Disaster Relief organization has already sent over $100,000 to the area and plans to send more.

We have come up with an interesting idea to help - rather than do a year end gift. I was planning on pre-ordering 4 XBox 360 with this year's funds and raffle the 4 XBox units off.

The XBox 360 unit I am interested in will have the wireless headset and controller and hard drive. The suggested retail is $399 according to GameStop.

At the moment we are still planning out the tickets and the number of XBoxes to purchase, but I should have firm details by Friday.
We are thinking of offering three (3) tickets for $10 or 1 ticket for $5. I am hopeful that we could double if not triple the investment. All proceeds would be forwarded to Western New York Diocese Disaster Relief Fund - and earmarked specifically for Katrina.

I tried to imagine myself coming home one evening and having absolutely nothing but the clothes I had on. It was a bit scary.

If anyone is interested in purchasing tickets, helping get the word out, selling tickets or even advice I would certainly appreciate hearing from you.

I would be willing to sell tickets. Not like I got much else going on.

I'll buy a 3 pack of tickets, Joel.

I could use me some xbox 360...
