I am running for the Brazos County Youth Livestock Fair Queen this year which is a part of my 4-H activities. As contestants, we sell raffle tickets to help raise money for the youth of Brazos County to provide scholarships, facility, prizes, and other elements for our yearly youth livestock show. This year we are raffling off the following prizes and there will be FIVE winners drawn:
- John Deere D100 Riding Mower w/42” Deck
- Stihl BG55 Leaf Blower
- Stihl FS45 Line Trimmer
- Stihl MS 180CD Chain Saw
- $50 Gift Certificate to Coufal-Prater
The tickets are $2 each or $10 for 6 tickets. The drawing will be on April 3, 2012 but all contestants must have their tickets sold by March 27th, 2012. You do not have to be present to win.
Queen contestants are judged on character, 4-H/FAA involvement, community service, leadership, an essay, an interview, and the number of tickets sold. My goal this year is to sell 1000 tickets which is more than double what I sold last year! If you are interested in buying any tickets please let me know! Checks can be made payable to the Brazos County Youth Livestock Association (BCYLA). If you know of any friends who would like tickets please pass this on!
Also, if you have a company and would like to sponsor me that is a opportunity as well. Your company will get its logo (or name, up to you) put on a poster that will be displayed for the five days of BCYLS. There are around 1,000 people at our show any given day so it will be a great publicity and advertising opportunity for your business. You will get raffle tickets for the amount of money your company donates, as well. Please just make sure you e-mail me your logo so I can put it on my poster! Once again any business you know who would life to take advantage of this opportunity please just have them contact me!
Thanks and have a great day,
Brazos 4-H Archery Club President
