Christmas Fund Plan
We have pledged 10% of our 2020 proceeds towards our Christmas fund. We were fortunate enough to have a 50CC Polaris Predator Outlaw 4-wheeler donated to our organization. We have decided to raffle off this 4-wheeler with all proceeds going towards our Christmas Fund. We are excited to announce that we will be using the funds to sponsor three veteran families $1,000 each for Christmas shopping. We will also be donating toys to Toys-4-Tots. (The distribution of the remaining funds will be declared at a later date.)
Tickets are on sell $20 for One or $100 for Six. We will only sell 300 tickets total. We will announce the winner live on Facebook on Veterans Day.
