2019 Fund Development Activities

By George S. Holliday, Fund Development Coordinator

Spring will be here soon, and the team is gearing up for several activities for 2019. On behalf of the Fund Development Team, I want to thank Tony Swartz for his hard work for PCB. As of January 1, 2019, Mary Ann Grignon will be chairing the PCB Auction subcommittee, and Tony will act as an advisor. Be sure to read Mary Ann’s article about this year’s auction which follows this article.

For the past two years, the Fund Development Team conducted a Monthly Monetary Support (MMS) fundraising contest. It was successful for each year, so, the committee will continue the contest this year. Details of the 2019 contest are being finalized and will be posted soon. Results of the pledges made in the first year of the contest boosted PCB’s MMS contributions over $2,000 in 2018.

Both PCB and ACB win every time someone enters the MMS program. On behalf of the PCB Fund Development Team I thank you for your participation. Contest winners from our most recent MMS drive were: $100 first prize to Mary Ann Grignon, and $50 second prize to Chris & Doug Hunsinger.

The weeks are counting down until the beginning of the PCB Six-month Calendar Raffle. Do you have your raffle tickets? If not, PCB Chapter Presidents and others can still request tickets to sell from Christina in the PCB office. If you would like to purchase tickets, mail a check with details in the memo field to the PCB office, or call and purchase tickets via credit card.

The raffle runs between April 1 and September 30, 2019. Ticket price is $20 and includes all 183 days of the raffle. Winners are based on the PA Lottery 7:00 PM Daily Number (First Draw Only)

Winning days and amounts are:
Holidays on 4/21, 5/12, 5/27, 6/16, 7/4, 9/2 receive $125.
1st and 15th of the month received $75.
All other days are $30.

To acquire tickets, contact the PCB office at 717-920-9999 or toll-free at 877-617-7407, or email pcboffice@pcb1.org. Good Luck! And thanks in advance for your support of PCB.

The Fund Development Team is working on several additional projects, such as the Room-Rate Fund, Loving Touch Connection promotion, and development of the Cross Four game. You will hear about these projects and more in future editions of The PCB Advocate and the list-servs.
