Raffle: Win a Trip to Vegas! (UPDATED!)

Boyle McCauley News will be 40 years old in 2019 – and we have decided to celebrate by fundraising!

We are beginning early with our first of three raffles: a trip for two to Las Vegas! It includes a hotel stay of three nights and four days, and tickets to a show – Cirque du Soleil or Celine Dion, or your preference (within reason). There are only 1,000 tickets being sold, at $10/ticket! They will be purchased online. Just send your number of tickets wanted to editor@bmcnews.org. Paula will take your order and send your tickets as soon as we are set up to receive your e-transfer. If you are unable to purchase online, contact Paula and we can make arrangements! More information is at the bottom of this article!

We will draw for the trip to Vegas on September 3, 2018 in Caboto Park during the EDLC Labour Day BBQ. The next two raffles will be a trip for two to Italy to be drawn on March 9, 2019, and a trip for two to the Far East, to be drawn in November, 2019. Tickets for each one will be on sale after the draw for the previous raffle.

Tickets are going fast, as we opened up sales to our volunteers and advertisers first (thank you volunteers and advertisers!) so get yours as soon as you can!

Good luck – here is the “fine print”:
