DISTRICT MEETING RAFFLE AND BASKETS

  1. All Clubs within each District send representatives and members to the annual District meeting in Fall.

  2. Prior to the meeting, members can purchase fellowship raffle tickets at their regular club meetings.

  3. Total raffle funds are divided by $1000 to determine the number of fellows drawn at the District meeting.

  4. All raffle tickets are then entered for a chance to win a basket of goodies (worth at least $75) at District Meeting.


REGION CONFERENCE FELLOWSHIP GAMES

  1. The Fellowship board annually develops a "game theme" with chances to win Fellowships. (The theme changes from year to year.)

  2. Each chance costs $10, with the goal to sell 100 chances per game, and a $1000 fellowship is award to person with the winning number key pulled for that game.

  3. The minimum number of games planned is set by the annual fellowship budget, and may be increased if there is a demand; usually 8-10 games are played at Conference.

  4. Fellowship board members visit clubs in their district and bring advanced sales of chances for these games, especially nice for people not able to attend in person.

  2. If enough funds are raised, the fellowship director can pool the money to award extra fellowships to members!
