A few pointers from the top sellers around the state.

 “These were easy to sell, I just ask.”

 “We use this raffle as a ready made fund raiser, no printing, no license, no state reports, etc. We just call for more tickets and sell them.”

 “We sell tickets before and after Mass”

 “ This is great for our fish frys.”

  My Brother Knights Remember - “Just Ask”, call today for more tickets, the charities that we all support are counting on us.

 “Did we tell you , we love you today?”
