IT’S ALMOST HERE!! Time is running out to buy your raffle tickets, donate a prize, or help in other ways for the Retiree Council’s Fourteenth Annual Fun(d) Raiser. It will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2017, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
For the first time in many, many years, the party location will be moved. So it’s really important to plan your route to the St. Paul Regional Labor Federation Building if you have not been there before, and pass the plan to the friends and family you are organizing to attend.
Thanks to the St. Paul Regional Labor Federation (RLF) for making their beautiful new building available. The Fun(d) Raiser will be in the first floor meeting room at the St. Paul RLF, 353 West Seventh Street, St. Paul MN 55102.
There will be seven cash prizes in the Statewide Raffle this year-- one $500 cash prize, two $300 cash prizes, two $150 cash prizes and two $100 cash prizes. Ticket price remains three for $5. All affiliates should have received the Fun(d) Raiser announcement, a flier and two packets of tickets. If you need more tickets, please contact the Retiree Council at 651 227 7647 ext. 121 or 1 800 652 9004 ext. 121. The drawing for these prizes will be held just before the conclusion of the Fun(d) Raiser.
FREE FOOD, PARKING, MUSIC!
All the traditional aspects of the event remain much the same-- free food, free parking and live music, as well as the hourly raffles and the silent auction. We still have the huge numbers of hourly raffle prizes. Some gubernatorial and mayoral hopefuls may attend, as well as other public office-holders. And we will all enjoy the incomparable camaraderie of a union party!
