2015 50-50 drawing
Nashville, TN September 8-13, 2015
Even if you can’t make it, you can be there in spirit and join in the fun.  
webassets/thCA4QT0N7.jpg
 Our annual 50-50 drawing is the biggest fundraiser that we have to support the organization.  Every penny that we collect is added up and split right down the middle. Half goes to offset Association costs and the other half is split between 3 lucky sailors. You do not have to be present at the reunion to play or win.  If your name is drawn as one of our lucky sailors, we will mail you a check.
Here is a chance to cash in on some big bucks. The more we sell, the bigger the prizes!  Ticket sales for the 50-50 will continue until just before the drawing, which will be at the Saturday evening banquet.
Send your check; $10.00 for each 12 tickets along with some of those pesky return address labels that regularly appear in your mailbox.
Our treasurer will take care of the funds and will even stick the address labels on the tickets. 
Make your checks payable to USS Benjamin Stoddert Association and mail to:

John Dishaw
3035 Charlotte Street
Newbury Park, CA 91320
or
Click below, choose your tickets and pay with PayPal...we will generate your tickets on the computer and send you an email copy.
Remember, the drawing is always open to everyone, regardless of whether or not you attend the reunion.
