Save The Date For The VDHA CALCUTTA
October 20 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm$100
Are you ready for some fun with friends with the chance of winning $1500? The Vermont Dental Hygienists’ Association has partnered with VTC and is very excited to be hosting our first ever Calcutta on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at the Catamount Country Club in Williston. The cost will be $100 per ticket, which includes your Calcutta Ball and a buffet dinner for two served at 6:00pm and a chance to win $1500. A cash bar will be available from 5:30pm-6:00pm. Only 98 balls will be sold. The money raised will go toward the VTC Molar Mobile (mobile dental hygiene outreach) and for VDHA public outreach events.
WHAT IS A CALCUTTA FUNDRAISER?
When you purchase a ticket, you receive a number between 1 and 98 (this number will coincide with a number on a ping pong ball). All the balls go into a bag. Starting around 6:30 PM we will start drawing balls out of the bag. The goal is to have your ball not get drawn and remain in the bag until the very end. If your ball is drawn you may win a door prize, but you will be out of the drawing for the $1,500.00 prize – maybe.
** We will be selling raffle tickets for balls 98 & 100 during the evening, so you can still have a chance to win the $1,500.00 even after your original ball has been drawn.
**When we get down to the last 5 balls left in the bag, those 5 people decide how to handle the $1,500.00 – whether to split it or keep drawing numbers.
VDHA would love to see each of you purchase a ticket. Please invite your spouse, significant other and friends for an evening of FUN & CHANCE while supporting your professional association. To purchase a ticket to reserve your special numbered ball, please contact Heather Blair at [email protected] or Ellen Grimes at [email protected]. Join us for what will be a fun-filled event!
**Calcutta Donations– To increase the “Fun” of winning, we are trying to collect products and service (certificates) from local businesses. If you are available to help us to get prizes for our Calcutta, please let us know. Erica Gates, RDH has prepared a letter explaining the Calcutta and our planned use for the money raised. Please e-mail Erica if you are able to help collect from YOUR area. [email protected] THANK YOU!!!**
