James Ross Memorial Sweepstakes Drawing

Friday, July 26th, 6:00PM

Jim Ross was a kind and gentle man. He made us laugh when the chips were down and always had a kind word for everyone. He enjoyed helping at Bingo and was passionate about ensuring the success of Senior Center fundraisers. As a Board Member, he worked hard exploring new ideas and always provided extra assistance when needed. He was dedicated to our Senior Center and will never be forgotten!

 

Jim inspired our annual sweepstakes. It's one of our major fundraisers and helps support the health, wellness and nutrition programs offered.

 

Tickets are $25.00. They can be purchased online, by mail (please allow your entry time to reach us for the drawing; note the sweepstakes entry in the check memo) or at the receptionist window.

 

Multiple tickets can be purchased. Multiple names can also be added to a ticket.

 

Please help spread the word about our sweepstakes so we can make this our most successful to date.

 

DISCLAIMER: In the event enough tickets aren't sold to cover the cost of prize money, the raffle will become a 50/50 raffle for the 1st prize winner.

 

Jane Ross, Jim's widow, will be with us to draw the winning entry. You do not need to be present to win.

 

Light refreshments will be available at the drawing. If you'd like to join us, please RSVP by calling 607-797-3145. You'll also have the opportunity to RSVP when you purchase your entry online.
