We are having a benefit event to raise money for the victims of the Boston Marathon.
To start things off we are having a raffle.
Mike E. has donated a Elvis Playfield ( a Stern factory second ) that was clearcoated.
It has a slight twist in it but side rails would straighten it out or mirror clips will hold it to a wall as a nice wall hanger.
You can see a picture of this playfield at http://www.netway.com/~mattg/elvis.jpg
We are going to sell raffle tickets for this item @ $5 a piece.
Tickets can be purchased at Lanes and games tomorrow from 4pm-8pm.
Tickets can also be purchased through my paypal account.
Please send the money using the "I'm sending money to family or friends" option.
Please when you send Paypal , use the message field, and include your full name, and nickname (screen name).
***CUT OFF TIME FOR PAYPAL IS 4PM Thursday 4-25-13 on ***
We have over 70 entries so far.
I will write down all names onto paper slips, and it will be randomly drawn at the end on the tourney tomorrow night.
100% of what is collected is going to a Boston Victims fund.
Thank you Mike for this donation
