From a friend of mine:
No, this is not spam. On behalf of Soroptimist International of Manhattan Beach (SIMB) I want to let you know about an amazing raffle that our organization is holding. Ordinarily I would not forward something like this en mass unless it is for a great cause (it is) and I can personally vouch for it (I can – I am a member of SIMB’s board). If you are still interested – read on!
On Sunday, May 6th at our Annual Tea, SIMB is raffling off a trip to Turkey for $25/ticket or 5 tickets for $100. The prize includes 2 roundtrip tickets on Turkish Airlines from LAX to Istanbul, Turkey and 5 one night vouchers (NO BLACKOUT DATES!) to any Doubletree hotel in the world. There are actually two Doubletree hotels in Istanbul but the way the prize has been arranged you can use the vouchers at any Doubletree hotel – not just the ones in Turkey. In other words, you can use the airplane tickets to go to Turkey and stay in a Doubletree there for up to five nights or split up the prizes and use the Doubletree vouchers on a completely different trip somewhere else if you wish. Your choice. The value of this prize is between $4000-$5000 depending on the season so this is a GREAT deal if you win!
Aside from winning a great prize – why should you buy a ticket? Simple. All proceeds will benefit SIMB’s projects, which include but are not limited to:
(1) The Crown Jewel Club –
(2) Children of the Night –
(3) High School Scholarships (including scholarships to members of the “S Club” at Mira Costa, awarded at our annual Awards Dinner on June 4th)
(4) Women’s Opportunity Award –
(5) Violet Richardson Award –
(6) Ruby Award – Given to a woman who has dedicated her personal or professional life to improving the lives of women and girls
(7) Breast Cancer Comfort Bags
(8) The Older Adult Health Fair
With your help we can continue to support these projects and many more. And, Soroptomist International of Manhattan Beach is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization so your donations are also tax deductible! Our Taxpayer ID is 95-6095754 and is also printed on your raffle ticket stub. Please help support these worthy causes by purchasing a ticket or block of tickets today (you can buy them from me or any member of our club) and good luck! (or as they say in Turkish “Iyi Sanslar!!”). :)
