The results from last year’s Charity Lottery draw have arrived. Congratulations to Council 1431 on being in the top 10% per capita of ticket sales in the province. This is a remarkable achievement for us. We have received 20% of our gross ticket sales, $2,502, for our charitable account and $625 for use in our council account.
There is a chance that this year’s tickets will be to us before Christmas. Tentative plans have been put in place to sell at the Mall if this occurs.
As we approach the end of the calendar year we would like to remind everyone that should anyone wish to make a charitable donation & receive a charitable tax receipt, your donation would be greatly appreciated. Make cheque payable to “Kilroy Council No 1431 Charitable Welfare Trust” and mail or deliver to John Saman 29 Sutter St. Stratford, Ontario N4Z 1G7 before December 29th, so that the donation will show in our records for 2016.
You can also contribute to the Welfare Trust account by stipulating that any memorial donations made at the funeral home, in memory of friends & relatives, be made in favour of “Kilroy Council No 1431 Charitable Welfare Trust” and the funeral home will accommodate your request, after which we will issue you your charitable tax receipt.
Thanks to all who have contributed to the Charitable Welfare Trust account over the past years.
