PCB calendar raffle
Simply grab some tickets for yourself for $20 each or a bunch to grow your chapter’s coffers. There is a chance to win every night between May 1 and October 31. The winning numbers are drawn each night from the PA state lottery, evening Pick-Three. On most nights, the least you can win if your number is drawn is $30. But hang on– if your number is drawn on either the 1st or 15th of any contest month, you’ll win $75. If you win on one of six holidays: Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Father’s Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, or Halloween– well then you will win $125. Just call the PCB Virtual office at 717-920-9999 or toll-free at 877-617-7407 and ask our fabulous secretary, Autumn, to send you tickets. There are also virtual tickets available. You can find out more by using the tools shared on the PCB-l and PCB-Leadership. If you need these documents emailed to you personally, please contact Mary Ann Grignon at 570-807-1276 or her a request at email@example.com.
Monthly Monetary Support (MMS) program
If you join the MMS program before January 14, 2022, you will be entered into a drawing for a first-place cash prize of $100 and a second-place cash prize of $50 from PCB. In addition, if you enter the contest by the conclusion of the ACB convention held in July, you will be entered into a drawing for a $500 gift card of your choice or a Sonos One 2nd Generation Smart Speaker. This lucky winner will be drawn in mid-August. All you need to do is to pledge a monthly commitment of $10, or if you are already donating, you need only increase your commitment by $5. Simply call the ACB office in Minneapolis at (612) 332-3242 and they will help you fill out the necessary forms to get you started.
2021 Virtual Conference Auction
Once again, the theme for our auction will be “Great things come in small packages.” The team hopes you’ll send in your offerings sooner than later so folks can start to browse long before our auction which will be held on September 19, at the close of our virtual auction. This year, because our conference is being held earlier than usual, we will need to have your donations no later than August 20 so we can prepare for the event and so we can put the item lists in alternative formats and have them delivered to all of you in a timely fashion. Last year, the Virtual auction raised nearly $3,800, one of our best years ever. We hope this year we can top this number. The fund development team thanks all of you in advance for your donations.
