Your activities department will be hosting a Paddle Party on Sunday, October 27th at 1:00 PM in the CH with 100% of the proceeds going to help support Mary Lois Halsted. For those of you who don’t know Miss Mary, she works in our front office in Reservations. Her husband Paul works in our Maintenance Department. Mary is currently battling breast cancer and is taking treatments. As we all know, this is extremely expensive. We want to show our love and support to Mary and her family with this paddle party.
What is a paddle party you ask?
A paddle party also known as a quarter auction is part raffle, part auction & part fundraiser. It works a bit like bingo. We will have items from your favorite Direct Sales Companies and Crafters to bid on.
How it works:
You can purchase a paddle for $5.00. Additional paddles can be purchased for $2.00 each. Corresponding chips are placed into the drawing bin for the auction. When we auction an item, you decide how many chances/paddles to bid with. For each paddle you will place a $.25 bid. You place 1 quarter into the cup on your table and raise your paddle(s). If we draw your number you win the item. If a number is drawn and there was no bidder, we keep going until someone wins!! … It is that simple! We will also have a silent auction. So bring your rolls of quarters for a chance to win.
We are still accepting vendors and donations for the silent auction. Please call Miss Rhonda at 417-331-2822 for further information.
We will have a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle. Trust me you don’t want to miss this awesome event and your chance to win some great prizes and to help our own out in her time of need.
If you would like to be a vendor or make a donation for the silent auction please see Miss Rhonda or Miss Ashley. You can call or text them at 417-331-2822.
