Carol, I'd like to make a donation, unfortunately, not very big, to the center. Burn injuries are terrible...disfigurement, pain, co$ts, etc.
It's nice to see people trying to do something for burn victims

Just please make it a check to the NY FFBCF-every single dime goes to the charity and I'll send you a receipt,also,for taxes,ah-ite? /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

<hr /></blockquote>

No can do /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif-Sorry /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif
That winner wins the tape,Spider and 2 hour lessons with Allen-thats one package deal!
On the Jan.22nd date,I had two weeks to put this together-well, winter wallop came-now,that gave me 4 more weeks-in that time, 10 raffle books,100 tickets/book, ten dollars a raffle were made up-the first day, 2 books were sold-thank-you Fulton Fish Market /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif
All the tables were sold at 200/table,theres 12 tables-that was back in January!
I have assigned a firefighter representive from the burn unit to come and calculate all monies-I just know my goal was 5-we're way passed it /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
When the ticket gets pulled,thats the winner-need not be present-you can always ask to trade if you dont win it,okay?
