Subject: [Corpus Christi 10062 Mail] Email blast for raffle

Fellow Brother, for the past two years we were able to give the Corpus Christi St Vincent de Paul a little more than $10,000 each year from our raffle sales.  As of today we are at $6,400 with two more weeks to sell tickets.  
We need your help to raise money for St Vincent de Paul. In February we gave or mailed tickets to every member.  You might not still have them but you can send us a check for any amount in $5 increments (1 book = $20, 6 books = $100, 1 and 5 free tickets respectfully) and we'll make out the tickets for you.  Give us a name and a telephone number that you want on the tickets. 
·         Seventy-Three [73] members of our total membership of 325 have sold or bought ticket.
·         Last year we had 90 members sell or buy a 'Century Sell' of $100.  This year we are at 72.
 The lesson of the 1st degree is CHARITY.  Maybe you are not able to attend our meeting but you can help us raise money for Charity.  The Charity Raffle is a fund raiser.  Please help us so we can help our local St Vincent de Paul.
"We must feed the hungry or be damned! Did I get your attention? I hope so! The very core of Christianity is not to focus on self but…to focus on others."  This quote is attributed to: Fr. Larry Richards, host of EWTN radio show.
As always any contribution is gladly accepted, but it is important that YOU DO contribute to this very important project!
God Bless you and your Family!
