There’s still time to purchase tickets for The Fulton Lions Club’s 11th annual “Lions Loot” sweepstakes, it was announced by club President Don LaBarge. The event drawings are scheduled for 4 p.m., Oct. 20 at the Fulton Polish Home. First prize is $10,000 and total prizes are $30,000.
Ticket applications are available at Struppler’s Shur Fine Market, Chirello Advertising, Devine Designs, PathFinder Bank-Fulton, Lakeview Lanes, Mimi’s Drive-in, both Fulton and Phoenix Medicine Place pharmacies, Family Chiropractic, Fulton office of the Greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce, or any Fulton Lions member.
“Each ticket purchased allows two adults to attend the drawing and enjoy food, drink, and entertainment the day of the drawing. Folks shouldn’t hesitate to give me a call at 374-1930 if they want tickets or have questions.
“Our goal is to sell all 1,000 tickets by before Oct. 20,” LaBarge said. “We’re hoping folks will grab this opportunity to purchase the remaining ticket for this event which helps us help many Fulton area residents with eye examinations, eyeglasses and hearing aids. Donations for each ticket are still $50 for adults aged 18 or older. This year alone, our club as provided more than $8,000 to help the hearing and vision impaired.
“We also wanted to remind participants that more than one name may be on a ticket. In addition, requests for a special number will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis, and that you need not be present to win.
“Every ticket sold will be in the drum for every drawing and you can win more than once, LaBarge said. “Taxes are the responsibility of the winner.”
