Dear brothers and sisters of Amerigo Vespucci Lodge #160,
Thank you for your continued support and dedication to the club. We have made significant improvements to the property over the past few years but as we know, there is always more to do. In addition to the cost of property maintenance, there have been continuous increases in our Grand Lodge per capita taxes. $38 of your dues goes to the Grand Lodge. Historically we have relied on events such as pasta nights, banquet dinners and our annual festival for fundraising. The weather during the festival the past few years has really hurt our revenue.
This year we are considering an alternative route. We are having a Super Raffle!!! This raffle may eliminate the need to increase membership dues in the upcoming years. Each member will be responsible for purchasing or selling one packet of ten $10.00 tickets.
We are printing 3,000 numbered tickets and giving away three cash prizes:
1st Prize- $7,000
3rd Prize- $1,000
This event can raise $20,000 for the club and enter all the members for the chance to win cash prizes! These ticket sales are easy for us to achieve since we are a club of 300 members. If we each do our share, this can be very successful. If you are a family membership, you will only receive 1 packet of 10 tickets.
Please take this raffle seriously as it depends on the livelihood of this organization. If there is ever a time to work together towards a common goal, it is now. Your packets will be available to you in July.
Tickets must be sold by September 7th, 2014. If you don’t sell them by then, please return the unsold ones to the Lodge. You must not discard any tickets as they are to be accounted for under the Connecticut State Statue. Return the money and ticket stubs for the tickets you sell no later than September 7th in an envelope we will provide with the tickets.
