My daughter, yes the one that is processing all the decals for you guys, is a clarinet player for the highly recognized and awarded Youngsville High School Marching Eagle Band.
Becasue the band is high caliber (no pun attended) every other spring the band is invited to travel overseas to Ireland and march in the St. Patrick's Day parade there. Now St Patty's day in Ireland is a BIG DEAL and this is quite the honor and opportunity for these hard working kids to represent the USA there.
Obviously, a trip like this with the band, parents, equipment and all that travelis a huge expense. Anyone that is not in the band (IE my wife is going)has costs over $2000 which they need to come up with on their own, so you can guess the cost of this whole trip. The kids however are the sole direct benefits from any fundraising effort so any funds made goes to get the KIDS there.
Unlike many schools and non-profits nowadays, Youngsville still believes in the good old American Gun raffle and they certainly have acquired one BEAUTIFUL custom gun to raffle off. It has a est. value of $7,500 and was built by Custom Guns of Corry, PA.
The tickets are 1 for $5 or 5 for $20, and it will be drawn at the Nov. 17 turkey party (more guns there too BTW). I work that turkey party and it is a hoot, last year i killed my bear a few hours before so I told the story alot that night..LOL, good people one and all.
I would LOVE to see a HPAer win this gun, i got more pics loading now, but here are the particulars.
And the tickets themselves
Buy a ticket (or 5) and I am sure Jessi will give you a FREE HPA DECAL or two for your support.
Tickets can be ordered by sending me a PM (to hold tickets) , or just eliminate that step and send the funds with the final order with your mailing address AND PHONE # to:
PO BOX 861

We will take care of postage back to you.
Checks should be made out to:
Youngsville Eagle Instrumental Boosters
Just like the decals, we will process your order QUICKLY and send you the stubs and a copy of the completed stubs that were entered in the drawing. COME ON HPA someone win this beautiful symbol of American freedom.
