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 ReelMr Twister

$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 TicketsMailing Address:
