“Juana and I have put together a fundraising raffle to try to make some additional money for our project to refurbish and convert 2 tennis courts at Mills Park into 8 dedicated outdoor pickleball courts. As you all know, we’ve raised a little over $5,600 so far with help from TMPC and all of you (thank you very much). We have gotten a little more ambitious, and believe if we can raise additional funds, we can expand the project from 4 dedicated courts to 8.
We’re promoting this at the MAC, through friends and family, and Juana’s connections in the community. I believe there is a potential here to raise all the funds needed to do the complete project for 8 dedicated courts.
Tickets are $10 each, and the prize is a beautiful gold, ruby and diamond pendant necklace with an appraised value of $1,000, generously donated by The Diamond Vault in Reno.
The drawing will be held at the MAC on February 8th, just in time for Valentine’s Day. You don’t have to be present to win.
If you can think of ways to help, want to buy and/or sell tickets, or just spread the word, we would greatly appreciate it. I’m attaching a copy of the flyer we created to help promote sales. You can contact me or Juana for tickets or more info.
