Coats for Kids!

This is the 4th consecutive year that our Council will once again be involved with the K of C Coats For Kids Drive and I'm proud to lead the effort. The National K of C out of Connecticut sells brand new, in the box, coats to each Council at a reduced retail cost. We buy them by the dozen from the National and try to get a good mix of Boys coats and Girls coats of all different sizes. The 909 has literally provided several hundred coats to local children in need of them over the past 4 winter seasons. Let's all agree to work together and try raise the needed money to provide coats to those in need this year as well. Our goal is to raise $1,500.00 and that will cover our costs plus buy several dozen coats for area children. While $1,500.00 is alot of money, if you stop to think about it, we only need to sell 300 of the raffle tickets at $5.00 a piece. Considering the size of our membership, it's only a couple of tickets a piece if everyone helps out. In a perfect world, we'll raise a lot more and provide a lot more.  

Here are the details. The tickets cost $5.00 a piece, or 5 for $20.00. We'll draw for the 50" Vizio Smart TV at the 909 on Saturday November 1st at 6PM. Snacks will be provided to everyone who shows up. You do NOT have to be present to win. All these details are printed on each raffle ticket. So, please consider purchasing, or selling, as many raffle tickets as you can so we can have another successful year of providing coats to local children that are in dire need of them.
