New/Different 50-50 Format

Starting in January we launched a different 50-50 drawing to add even more interest to our meetings! Half of the money collected from the purchase of 50-50 tickets will be awarded to the person who draws the joker from a deck of cards. If no one draws the joker at this meeting the money will be held over until the next meeting. The 50-50 pot continues to grow until someone picks the joker! Come to the meeting & learn more! and try your luck!
