PALAD – Lucky Weeks Club Raffle

An elevator will allow mobility-challenged and wheelchair-bound parishioners access to the upper and lower churches. To make this project move closer to reality and to provide funds for other projects at St. Mary’s, we are selling raffle tickets which are now available for purchase after all Saturday pm/Sunday Masses or at the parish office.

A Lucky Weeks Club raffle ticket costs only $20 and gives 21 chances to win! Beginning on Sept. 25th, there will be 13 weekly Wednesday drawings for $50 each, and one large drawing at the Simbang Gabi on December 20th. At this one, there will be 4 drawings for $150 each and 4 drawings for $50 each.  Winning tickets are returned to the pool and get a chance to win again.  All drawings will be held in Szelest Hall at 7:30PM.  Winners need not be present.

You can buy tickets after the weekend masses, at the parish office or by contacting one of the members of PALAD listed in the bulletin.
