AFMS Endowment Fund Items for 2001

Each year the AFMS Endowment Fund holds a fund raiser at the annual Convention. This fund raiser has become a two tiered endeavor in recent years with the addition of a special drawing item with tickets being sold by each of the seven Regional Federations in advance of the show and convention. This year is no exception.

Tickets for it are now available from your Regional Federation AFMS Endowment Chairperson.  A drawing will be held at the AFMS Convention banquet on June 16,2001 in Arlington, Texas.  The prizes will be awarded to the lucky persons holding the winning tickets.

In addition to the drawing, we intend to also conduct our popular "bag raffle" at the show. Each Federation has been asked to donate at least one item for this and tickets will be available in Arlington for this second phase of our fund raiser.

Any funds raised will be held in the AFMS Endowment Fund to further the goals of the AFMS and its member federations. Monies collected by the Endowment Fund are invested and only the interest may be used by the Federation.

We would like to say "Thank you!" to all who have assisted in this endeavor, whether by donating prizes, selling tickets, or by purchasing tickets.
