This year’s Annual Fashion Show, typically held each spring, had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. This normally provides us with the necessary funds to benefit our scholarships to Hopatcong Area High School Seniors. Our “Plan B” however, is a Holiday 50/50 Raffle that could provide the winner with up to $2,000 just in time for the Holidays!
Between now and the end of November, $10 tickets are available through any Hopatcong Woman’s Club member, or by contacting Diane at 973-398-1736. Checks may be made out to The Hopatcong Woman’s Club. Our goal of selling all 400 tickets will result in the maximum amount to be awarded in scholarship monies as well as to the winning ticket holder.
Drawing to be held on December 2, and winner need not be present to win. All donations ore tax deductible (RL#RA2020-10, ID #218-8-24951).
