Our annual Super Raffle Fundraiser was held today. A great turnout of members and ticket buyers enjoyed a great lunch at the Pomfret Club. And we were sold out on our tickets before today even began. Selling out in advance makes the day even more enjoyable. A ”BIG” Thank You to Joanne Cappellano for again chairing the event. And a big thank you also to Charlie Adams, Skip Fairchild, Gary Tempest and Chuck Snyder for assisting with the event. And a big thank you to everyone who was responsible for selling or buying at least one ticket. And every one of the last 5 names was happy because they were all in agreement to split the $10,000 GRAND PRIZE equally. That means each one got a piece of the pie, $2000, instead of only 1 person getting the whole pie. There were 7 winners @ $150 each, 2 winners @ $500 and 5 winners @ $2000. But the big winners are the various organizations and kids that Easton Kiwanis supports throughout the year. Thank you all.
Next Wednesday June 19thwe will be inducting our 2 newest members: Carole & Tony Cappellano. And Palmer Kiwanis’ president, Attorney Victor Scomillio will be presenting his program, An Anatomy of a Murder. See you noon at the Pomfret Club. Speaking of the Pomfret Club, some of the staff were holding one of the $2000 winning numbers. Other “big” winners today were: Peter Cooper, former Kiwanian Phil Hof of Hof & Reid LLC, Kurt Poling and Kiwanis International Trustee from Florida Chuck Gugliuzza. I have a feeling that most will buy a ticket or 2 next year.
