I am a member of the Bessemer Junior Service League – I know – I live downtown and not in Bessemer. I know a lot of the people that are members (many in the legal community) and joined this year. We’re holding a fundraiser on March 2 and the proceeds will go toward scholarships that benefit high school students across Jefferson County, not just residents of Bessemer. The recipients are chosen primarily based on their own community service work.
It’s a $5,000 Draw Down and we’re only selling 250 tickets. We will also be giving away door prizes throughout the night as well for ticketholders whose numbers are drawn. A drawdown raffle is similar to a traditional raffle, but is played in reverse. Instead of drawing one winning number, the raffle is played by slowly eliminating numbers until only one number remains and is declared the winner.
If you’re interested in purchasing a ticket, please let me know. I’m also looking for donation of door prizes and I was hoping that you guys might be interested in donating a gift certificate to your restaurant, gift basket from your shop or whatever works for you.
Last year the fundraiser was held in the Meelheim Building and it was a lot of fun.
If you’re interested in a ticket or can donate something, please let me know.
