With St. Patrick’s Day approaching, Youngstown Lions Club President Terry Cummings has announced the traditional “St. Patrick’s Cash Bash” raffle will be virtual due to COVID-19 protocols. The online event will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 17.
“The club has decided to hold a no in-person event without the usual party due to the COVID-19 regulations,” he said. “Many worthwhile charities have asked the Lions for their assistance during the pandemic and, without the community’s continual support of the ‘Cash Bash’ fundraiser, it would be impossible for the Youngstown Lions to address their needs.”
Fifteen cash drawings will be held on St. Patrick's Day evening with prizes totaling $3,400. A list of winners will be posted after the draw at the following online locations: the Youngstown Lions Facebook page (www.facebook.com/youngstownNYlionsclub) and the Youngstown Lions website (www.youngstownlions.org).
Proceeds benefit Youngstown Lions Park, the Youngstown Lions Scholarship Fund in honor of the late Neil Riordan, and many other Lions-supported charities.
Tickets are available for a $20 donation. To purchase tickets, contact Suzanne DeJoseph ([email protected]/716-807-8875) Richard Allen ([email protected]/716-870-9722) or Terry Cummings ([email protected]/716-550-6268).
Tickets are also available at the Youngstown Village Diner, Stone Jug, Victoria’s Hair Salon, Coppins Service Center in Lewiston, Porter Town Hall, the Youngstown Barber Shop, Anchor Spirits and Wines and the Little Bakery in Niagara Falls.
“We Lions hope that in 2022 we are able to hold this fundraiser along with entertainment, food and refreshments. The Youngstown Lions Club would like to thank the community for their continued support of Lions fundraisers,” Cummings said.
