Support Our Troops – Our local veterans need your help and here’s how YOU can participate

No. 1 Way to help: Register with Fry’s and Amazon; no money or additional effort is required.

Thanks to the generous support of Fry’s Food and Amazon, you can register your account information and request your spending dollars be “credited” to Support Our Troops-AZ (SOT-AZ). Once you register, each time you purchase groceries at Fry’s or something on Amazon, the credit is automatically applied to SOT-AZ. We have had great success with our Robson supporters so far, but we need everyone to take advantage of this easy way to contribute.

Websites are: Amazon: http://smile.amazon.com/ch/45-4659819; Fry’s: www.fryscommunityrewards.com. Contact BJ Foster at 2omafoster@gmail.com if you have any registration issues.

No. 2 Way to help: Become a member; run for the Board.

Become a member and contribute your fresh, new ideas to our growing club. We would love to see some of our new residents not only join SOT-AZ, but also become a member of our board. Of course we encourage our current members to consider running for a board position as well. It is so important for the continued growth of SOT-AZ that we have new blood contributing new ideas, resulting in more ways to help support our local veterans.

No. 3 Way to help: Participate in our fourth annual Veterans Day Golf Tournament Festivities November 5-11, 2015.

Registration is filling up fast, but that doesn’t mean you can’t join in the fun. Non-golfers as well as those that miss the sign-up can still participate in many ways.

A) Raffle Ticket Sales: great prizes will be drawn on November 11.

Purchase tickets: Prices 9/1-10/15/2015: 500 for $100; 250 for $60; 75 for $20.

B) Live Auction: fabulous items with professional auctioneers handling the bidding. If you didn’t attend our first live auction last year, please plan to join the fun. Last year’s auction items included two large landscape packages valued at $15K and $50K. Large as well as small bid items are available, along with a night of entertainment, food and drink! Date and details will follow; watch for the web blast.
