Christmas Adopt-a-Family Raffle
« on: October 24, 2017, 01:06:25 PM »

As many of you long timers know, Ultimate Bass holds a raffle to raise money for a needy family each year. So far we've helped out 4 families. These families typically had extreme medical bills that prevented a joy filled holiday season. The recipients can use the funds however they see fit. This family will be picked from suggestions of the membership, by the moderators, with Mother Nature having the final vote.

So first the raffle. I am late getting started on this but so far the raffle consists of

First place prize:
Gary donated a Dobyns Rods Colt Series spinning rod
UB is donating a Lews Spinning Reel
Mr Twister is donating  $100 worth of plastics

Second Place:

$100 bait package from Fishing Frenzy Tackle. Photo coming soon.

Third Place:

$40 dollar gift card to Monster Fishing Tackle

Tickets are your basic Raffle Ticket. Ticket cost is $5 per ticket or 5 tickets for $20. We take all forms of money :-* You can mail a check (please let me know it's coming), we prefer Pay Pal, and if you want to use a CC we can sent you a Pay Pal invoice that you can pay without having and Pay Pal account. See the bottom of the post for further information.

I will message you the numbers of your tickets. You'll need to hang onto these numbers. On December 19th we will draw the winners and post the ticket numbers. I'm hoping to do the drawing on Facebook Live to ensure the integrity of the raffle, but that is still to be determined as we need to practice it LOL. (You do not have to have Facebook in order to win, winning numbers will be published on the Ultimate Bass forums)

The funds recipient - I will take nominations over the next two weeks. Please look to your Ultimate Bass neighbors first and then to your local neighborhood. The recipient does not have to be a UB member, but we like to make sure we don't miss one of our own. Please submit a nomination via email (Mike@ultimatebass.com) or PM it to me here on the site.

(NOTE: I heard through the grapevine that many who knew this raffle was coming were throwing Mike and Laurie into the potential recipient pot, please don't do this. The Ultimate Bass members through support and prayers have righted our ship, they boys are well clothed and have enough toys to keep them busy to Christmas. We now have a budget for the Holidays thanks to you all)


How to Pay for Tickets

Mailing Address:

Ultimate Bass
C/O Adopt a Family
5422 Amber Circle
Benton La 71006

Pay Pal address

First and foremost, save everyone the fees and send funds as "Friends and Family"
Mike@Ultimatebass.com
Please put Adopt a Family in the notes section.

Credit Card

Our only option here is to send you an invoice via Pay Pal, you do not have to have a Pay Pal account to pay the invoice. However there is a 3% surcharge and since this is a fund raiser, I'll split it with you.

Disclaimer: We have to have one so here it goes. All rules of this raffle are subject to change by site administration. Ultimate Bass is not responsible for the delivery of prizes, however we will provide our best efforts to ensure winners receive their prizes in a timely manner.

Once again UB shows why it is the greatest place on the web period. So proud of everybody here for doing this each year.  ~c~

Mike, you know my Pay Pal is messed up so I will get the first round of funds out to you in the mail next week.

Unfortunately this weeks $$ is already spent.   :(

Steve it's not the amount we give but the spirit we give it in and if enough of us that can't give much give what we can that will make a big difference to a family that needs it.  ;D

We need to step up the pace though so spread the word, sell tickets to your fishing buddies and your online fishing friends. It's easy and the cause is greater than all of us.
