The Pleasant Hills Lions Club will hold its G-r-reat Giveaway a popular fund-raising event, on Saturday, May 4 at 7 p.m. at the Pleasant Hills Community Presbyterian Church, 199 Old Clairton Road. Pittsburgh, PA 15236. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
The G-r-reat Giveaway is a series of many fast-paced raffles featuring over 250 prizes donated by local merchants and professionals and including sporting goods, toys, jewelry, home furnishings, appliances, automotive supplies, hardware items, glassware, games, nonperishable food items and certificates for a wide variety of services, restaurants and merchandise.
Particularly appealing again this year will be a separate and special raffle for a new Apple IPad Mini and Kindle Fire.
For all prizes other than the IPad Mini and Kindle Fire drawings; patrons purchase books of 100 tickets at the door and may participate in any or all of the raffles. Tickets are collected individually by Lions attendants for each drawing. The cost is $10 for one book, $18 for two and $24 for three. There will also be a 50/50 raffle, and 25c Strip Ticket bingo.
Event co-chairs Bill Lowman and Jim Stark emphasize the dual benefits of the affair in that it provides a family fun night as well as a major source of income for the many charitable contributions made by the club. The latter include services for the vision and hearing impaired, diabetes awareness projects, local community organizations and school programs and activities.
Refreshments will be available and early arrival is suggested.
