Old Bags of Arlington plan raffle

ARLINGTON — The Old Bags of Arlington are again selling raffle tickets for its upcoming meat raffle.

Entrants can win a $150 gift certificate from Silvana Meats, which can be used to purchase a big box of meat of the winner’s choice, said member Pat Hollister.

Tickets can be purchased for one dollar. The drawing for the meat will be on Dec. 3.

Tickets, as well as the group’s cookbooks, will be sold at Arlington Community Day on Sept. 18. Donations will also be accepted during that time, Hollister said.

The women’s club serves children and needy families in the Arlington area, and holds a number of contests and fundraisers throughout the year.

Last year, more than 1,300 tickets were sold at the Old Bags’ meat raffle. That raffle was won by Arlington resident Judy Claxton, who is the Chairperson for the Toys for Kids Drive.
