The Fulton Lions Club recently launched its 10h annual “Lions Loot” sweepstakes, it was announced by club President, Jim Sokolowski. The event drawings are scheduled for 1 p.m., Sun. Oct. 21, 2012 at the Fulton Polish Home. Here Sokolowski sells 50-50 tickets at a recent Lions Loot drawing. For information, contact Event Chair Don LaBarge at 315-374-1930.

“Donation forms have been mailed to all who participated in last year’s event,” Sokolowski said. “We’re anticipating strong support again this year 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, we’ve provided more than $7,000 to help the hearing and vision impaired.”

“There will be two early bird drawings again this year,” said Lion Don LaBarge, Lions Loot chairperson. “ Five names will be drawn for $100 each from all applications received by April 30.” The winners’ names will be drawn at the May Fulton Lions Club board meeting. The second drawing will be for five more $100 prizes for all applications received by July 31 at the August board meeting. Winners will receive their checks in the mail.

“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. 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.”
