Its that time again! Every year our District sells these raffle tickets to support the operating expenses of the District. It is expected that every Rotarian will sell at least ten tickets. The grand prize is amazing! (If you buy all ten tickets from your self, you'll win $15,000 and our club will get $5,000!) There are two book options. There are five tickets @$20 each; or you can get xxxxx if you sell the all to the same person. Also, for every ticket we sell, our club will get $4.00!
Check out this new website that the District Public Image committee has been working on.  Cornelia and Amy are the brains of the outfit. The idea is that internet searches and social media will lead people to this website, and thus our Idaho clubs. check it out:

Q: Why are we having a Golf Scramble Fundraiser?
A: Our Club Dues don’t pay for our local service programs and projects. Club Fundraisers do!
Club Dues pay for costs to be a club: RI & District Dues; Weekly Lunch; Club Admin & Training; Membership & Fellowship Budgets.
Club Fundraisers pay for our Service Programs and Projects: Rotary Youth Exchange; RYLA; Everyday Leadership; Dictionary Project; JEM Friends.
Our Golf Scramble is our Spring opportunity to raise funds that make these valued programs possible. If you like being a part of what Boise Metro Rotary offers to our local youth and community, then now is the time to step forward to support our Spring Fundraiser.
Call to action now:
Find Sponsors! Hole Sponsorships start as low as $250 and go up to $2,500 for Title Sponsor. I challenge each member to find a sponsor in their network.
Find your Foursome!  Golf Foursome price is $500. We need to sell 30 Foursomes. I challenge each member to get a Foursome to play.
