Win A Windjammer Cruise While Helping The PHiP Scholarship - 2019
September 01, 2019
Windjammer has once again graciously donated a windjammer cruise to help benefit the PHiP Scholarship. You can buy these tickets individually or as a club donation to the scholarship (domino college recognition) and use this great prize for your fundraiser. Last year’s winner was a club and they are using their prize for their fundraiser at the end of this month.
All are eligible to win whether they are going to MOTM or not.
Parrot Heads in Paradise have been awarding qualified parrot heads and their children a total of $10,000 in scholarships every year for the last 10 years. Fundraising has been just keeping pace with our pay-outs each year and we want to add some additional funds to ensure future years’ have adequate funding. To make sure that we can continue to award these gifts well into the future we have come up with a great way to help that cause. Windjammer cruises has donated a cruise for two to raffle off this year. We will be selling tickets via PayPal or check starting today. We will draw for the cruise Saturday, November 3rd from the stage at Meeting of the Minds for the seven night cruise on this beautiful boat. Winners do not need to be present at MOTM to win the cruise! Tickets are five for $20 or five dollars for one. I will send you via email with a list of your numbers so you have them for your records. I will be tracking the name and numbers of every ticket coming in and they will all be in Key West for the drawing. You can pay via PayPal - https://www.paypal.com/home to PHiPscholarshipraffle@yahoo.com (Please click on the friends and family link) or send your check to David Cohen, 6986 Samantha Court Wheatfield, NY 14304 (checks payable to Parrot Heads in Paradise). Checks will only be accepted up until MOTM registration closes on September 15th. If you are mailing a check please send your email address if you want your numbers emailed to you. When you get to MOTM you may purchase additional tickets right up until 2:30 pm on Saturday. Below is what the cruise is all about. Thank you in advance for your support of the wonderful cause.
