Despite Snow, FGLC Steak Dinner Fundraiser’s a Success!

Over 200 brave, hardy souls came out on Tuesday, March 2, despite the snowy, messy weather and it resulted in a resounding success for Fair Grove Lions Club’s annual fundraiser. Even Lion District Governor Theresa Matthews ventured into town to join us! We greatly appreciate her tireless support.

  All 140 tickets were sold and special thanks go to David Lambeth for his efforts to ensure that the event was sold out! And thanks to all the FGLC members who did your part to secure door prizes, sell tickets for the event, prepare food and get everything set up before and cleaned up after.

Lion President Patricia Carroll did a great job of emceeing the event and activities, especially in light of the weather, and moving things along to ensure everyone was able to get on the road as early as possible and home safely. This was definitely a great team effort that could not have been accomplished without everyone chipping in and doing your part!

The $1500 grand prize was split between three winners and it was rumored that one intends to donate their prize to the Honor Flight organization which sponsors veterans to travel to Washington, D.C. to see the WWII memorial that was erected in their honor. While expenses are yet to be tallied and the total funds raised finalized, we do know that we exceeded our auction sales over last year by about $300! Stay tuned for the final report!

The Give Away is a fundraising winter project where 140 tickets are sold for $60 each. A ticket buys dinner for two and a chance to win $1500. Most tickets win a door prize and the meal includes steak, potato, salad, bread, tea, and cake. The event this year was at the Memorial United Methodist Church Enrichment Center in Thomasville on Tuesday, March 2, 2010 at 6:30PM
