Less than 400 tickets remain for The Fulton Lions Club’s 10thannual “Lions Loot” sweepstakes, it was announced by club President David Dingman. The event drawings are scheduled for 1 p.m., Sun. Oct. 21, 2012 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,” Dingman 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 $7,000 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 Don LaBarge, 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.”
Ticket applications are available at Struppler’s Shur Fine Market, Chirello Advertising, HSBC Fulton, PathFinder Bank-Fulton, Fulton Polish Home, Blue Moon Grill, Mimi’s Drive-in, both Fulton and Phoenix Medicine Place pharmacies, Family Chiropractic, Red Brick Pub, Tavern on the Lock, and Foster’s Funeral Home.
