Enjoy a good game and help your favorite charity

The Lyons Township High School Boosters Club is holding its 14 the annual Pack the Place BBQ and Split Pot raffle this Saturday January 21 from 4-7:30 pm. It will take place at the Lyons Township High School in LaGrange.

Between varsity boys and girls basketball games you can enjoy delicious barbecue meal combos for $10 or $7; $2 from each meal will be donated to the local charity of your choice. You can also buy chilli for $4 and side dishes such as coleslaw for $2. The raffle tickets are $10 each or $50 for six.

Lyons printing companies have already played their part by providing the raffle tickets, many of which will be mailed out in advance of the event to Lyons Township residents. Direct mailings such as these can be quite effective. . For example, many organizations mail out holiday cards and rely on the public to pay for them later. Of course, with the raffle tickets only those bought and paid for will be entered and eligible to win. Those who wish to enter must return the ticket stub and a check by January 20. The draw will take place during intermission of the final basketball game of the day.

An event such as this is not only effective in raising money for local charities; it is also great for community pride. High school sports are known for bringing communities together to cheer for their children and this will be no different.
