Club is getting a head start on fundraising dinners for families in need. Most of us have been there but too proud to ask. We don't wait for folks to ask, we raffle guitars and give away food shopping gift cards.

Jason Weaver donated a beautiful 6string traveler we're drawing on in December. So here is a great idea you can use for your community in your area to give just in time to warm the hearts of many.

There were twenty entries, so the odds were 1 in twenty, not bad. We did't meet our goal but still able to 4 families with everything Christmas dinner.

I hope that you all raised a nice amount for the dinners. A great cause all around and I'm happy to have had a part in it. Even if I didn't win.....

Chrissy Hapness to all and Good an All Night!

Walked in, bought two tickets and won just like that! Awesome fundraiser for Christmas dinners going out to lucky families. Many thanks to all of you who purchased tickets for this cause. A big thank you to Jason Weaver for donating a really cool guitar built with love and fine skills. Kevin's name was pulled and here is his smiling face, enjoy and Merry Christmas!
