Health Fair Booth with WA 1090, BOTHELL 2016

1090bothellBlessing 007 Booth 003 TOPS BOOTH 012
TOPS Rally Basket 014 During August and September, WA 1090 Bothell had a booth in the Farmer's Market
at Parkridge Church in Bothell. We had information about TOPS, our chapter and talked with
a lot of men and women. (our booth was in a heavy traffic area, by the kettle corn booth, oops)
As an inducement to visit our table we also raffled a Seahawks basket. Items were donated by
chapter members and the pastor of the church pulled the winning ticket the last night. Yes the
winner is the boy in gray, what gave it away? So we were able to spread word about TOPS, hopefully
attract new members for our chapter, the basket was fundraiser for our event fund and
OSCAR IS ONE HAPPY BOY!! P.S. If any other chapters want to do a raffle go on line for the
Washington State Gaming Commission and download the rules so all is legal.
