We’ve already let you know what the big prize at tomorrow’s DC SCORES happy hour is. Yes, a brand-new iPad (buy your iPad raffle tickets online now!).
But what if you already have an iPad? Or have an iPhone and iPod and can only handle so many iP_ _ accessories?
That’s no reason not to come to One Lounge tomorrow from 5:30-7:30 pm. Not only will the happy hour be a great opportunity to learn more about our unique program and network with fellow DC SCORES supporters, but we have five extremely appealing auction packages for you to win.
Thanks to the generosity of local businesses, you will have the chance to enter as many raffle tickets ($10 apiece or 3 for $25) as you want in the running for the following packages. Raffle tickets can be bought at the event prior to 7 pm and placed in the running for the package(s) of your choice.
