Craft Fair Raffle tickets have been printed and mailed out. A letter from Father Mike with extensive details about the raffle including very interesting information on past Grand Prizes accompanies the ticket mailing.
Dear Fellow Parishioner:
The Second Whaling City Catholic Community Craft Fair is right around the corner. The Fair will take place on Saturday, October 15th and Sunday, October 16th. It will be one of our biggest fundraising events of the year. Our committee has worked very hard to put together a fun weekend for all!
A large portion of the profit from this event will come from the sale of our 50/50 raffle tickets. Along with the Grand Prize there are 5 second prizes of $100.00 each. Tickets are $5.00 each or a book of 5 tickets for $20.00. That makes one FREE ticket!
In my past experiences, I have seen this raffle have a grand prize of $5,500.00-$12,000.00!
Last year’s winner took home $8,000.00.
Enclosed are 2 books of tickets that we are asking each parishioner to purchase or share with their friends, relatives, co-workers, neighbors – or anyone who enjoys winning big! At $5.00, this is a great value and the odds of winning outshine any lottery ticket! Please return payment and all tickets sold (along with unsold tickets) to the church office at:
Whaling City Catholic Community Craft Fair,
121 Mount Pleasant Street, New Bedford, MA 02740.
Checks should be made payable to: Holy Name of the Sacred Heart
Tickets and payments can also be placed in any weekly collection. Remember – do not return cash by US Mail.
The drawing will be held at the end of the Fair on Sunday, October 16th. You do not need to be present to win.
Thank you for supporting this year’s Fair … bring your friends and relatives … it will be fun for all!
See you there and best of luck on your raffle entry!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Reverend Michael S. Racine, Pastor
