Youth Activities Fundraiser
Elks Lodge #322 recently bought two quality market hogs at the Paso Robles Mid State Fair for the purpose of having the animals become the source of additional funding to support our youth activities. As our membership has expanded, there is a growing interest in enhancing youth activities beneficial to our members children and you can be an important part of that effort by simply buying a couple of raffle tickets in this year's pig raffle with all net proceeds committed to support our youth.
The two market hogs represent four quarters per animal, all cut and wrapped, or eight quarters total. Each quarter comes packed in a suitable container and will be a real treat for the whole family. We then make the packaged quality meat available through the sale of charitable raffle tickets to our members, family and friends. Every raffle ticket gives someone the chance to win 1/4 of the carcass which reflects eight chances to win! Our raffle tickets will only cost $20 each, quite reasonable given the quality of the "pampered" pork, the number of chances you have to win and, most important, all surplus funds go to support our LODGE YOUTH ACTIVITIES in the community.
The drawing will be held in December on Orientation Night and you need not be present to win!
Two tickets will be mailed to each member with the hope that you will buy or sell them to support this important effort for our kids. We will also be offering a "BONUS OPTION AGAIN THIS YEAR" whereby all you need do is sell a minimum of five tickets, take them all to the Lodge Office at the same time and we will give you an additional two free raffle tickets on the spot! Additional tickets will be available at the Lodge Office, Lodge Bar and from Officers and members who help us sell these tickets.
As a fraternal organization, we can make things happen by taking the initiative, a little time and effort to participate in this activity all of which can directly affect your children in a very positive way. Now is the time to help build the resource base to enhance and increase the level of youth activities as we work together to make our Lodge responsive to improving what we have done and exploring other alternatives as well.
Please watch for our mailer and buy your tickets early and often!
