There’s still time to be entered in the final Aug. 8 Early Bird drawing for The Fulton Lions Club’s 11th annual “Lions Loot” sweepstakes, it was announced by club President Don LaBarge. Any ticket purchased up to Aug. 7 will be entered in the Early Bird where five $100 winners will be drawn. The event drawings are scheduled for 1 p.m., Sun. Oct. 20, 2013 at the Fulton Polish Home. First prize is $10,000 and total prizes are $30,000.
“Our goal is to sell all 1,000 tickets by October,” LaBarge said. “We’re hoping folks will grab this opportunity to purchase the remaining tickets for this event which helps us help many Fulton area residents with eye examinations, eye glasses 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 $5,000 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, said Kevin Michaels, event chairman. “Taxes are the responsibility of the winner.
“Each ticket purchased allows two adults to attend the drawing and enjoy food, drink, and entertainment the day of the drawing. To give yourself the best chance of reserving your lucky numbers and winning an Early Bird drawing, we urge you to return your applications as soon as possible.”
