Raffle slated in Lafayette
LAFAYETTE — The Lafayette Citizens Fund is planning to hold a raffle at 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, at the Lafayette Community Center, 133 Adams St. It will precede bingo play staged there on a regular basis.
Last year, proceeds were divided among several charitable causes, including the fire department toy drive and local Scouting units. Allocation of this year's proceeds hasn't been determined yet, according to organizer Linda Lyon.
Tickets are slated to go on sale Aug. 10 at $5 each. They may be purchased at Walmart, Martha's Tacos, Lafayette Auto Supply and the Lafayette Beauty Salon.
Prizes include a 32-inch TV and a Kindle Fire e-reader, each valued at $200, and a $100 Fred Meyer gift certificate. Lyon can be reached at 503-864-4539.
