|Just imagine what great timing that could be for you! The Didsbury Elks are selling the annual Alberta Elks Foundation Raffle tickets - and it could be your turn!|
As it has been for all of us, 2020 has been a tough year for our Didsbury Elks. The Didsbury Elks Lodge usually hosts several events throughout the year including a Mother's Day Breakfast and a Spaghetti Supper.
The organization has donated a comfort kit for pediatric patients at the Didsbury Hospital, and most recently, purchased a magnetic sand table for children to play with while waiting in the emergency department.
This year, they also ran a very successful Gowns for Grad program before the pandemic hit, but volunteers were disappointed they could not host their usual Pancake Breakfast and Downtown Parade during the annual rodeo weekend.
They are usually able to sell tickets to the provincial raffle at the Trade Expo and Showcase Didsbury, but it's a little harder this year to get the word out.
First Prize is $30,000 CASH!! 2nd - $10,000; 3rd - $5,000; 4th - Gas Gift Cards
Proceeds from this raffle enable the Elks to provide assistance to the Institute for Stuttering Treatment and Research, local community projects, assistance to underprivileged children, and supplying hearing aids and tests for children.
Tickets are just $2 each or 3 for $5.00. 30% of all ticket sales go directly back to the selling Lodges to invest in their communities.
Final draw date is June 5, 2021. All Early Bird Draws take place at the Didsbury Elks Hall (March 11, April 8, and May 13, 2021).
If you would like to purchase tickets, you can contact any Didsbury Elk member or Ron or Shelley at 403-335-9213.
