SPRING EXHIBITION RAFFLE PRIZES
How is everyone going selling our fundraising raffle tickets? If anyone would like more books to sell, or knows of a shop or other location willing to take a book for their counter, please let our raffle organizers know, as we still have plenty of books to distribute. If any non-ASOC, noble, kind and generous, arts supporting persons would like to take a book to sell for us, or would like to purchase a book of 10 tickets (@ $2 each) we would of course like to hear from you also.
This is a lovely way to promote ASOC and also raise much needed funds. Thanks to those who have donated prized and the organisers - a great job!
The photo above shows some of the great raffle prizes. For photos of other prizes click here or visit our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/…
