During the summer months, Anne MacMillan and Holly Simmenroth, co-chairs of the fundraising activity and their committee have been busy soliciting the best restaurants in the area to donate dining certificates for the benefit. More than 87 local restaurants will be participating. Tickets will be on sale and may be purchased from any Lioness Club member.
Six lucky winners will receive restaurant certificates to all of the restaurants in their winning category. Each category has a retail value exceeding $610.
The donation for a ticket is $10. Each ticket is eligible for the six drawings. A winning ticket is not eligible for further drawings. No one under the age of 18 is allowed to participate. Presence at the drawing held in the Lamplighter Restaurant at 8 p.m., Thurs., Dec. 1 is not required.
Lioness Club members will be available for ticket sales throughout the local communities. Look for sales booths at upcoming community events, and at local shops.
