ARLINGTON — The Old Bags of Arlington’s annual meat raffle helped one Arlington woman stock up her fridge over the holidays.

Bonnie Siegert won a $150 gift card to Silvana Meats, after buying a number of tickets in the hopes of winning. Club member Alice Parker sold her the winning ticket.

The Old Bags of Arlington is a nonprofit philanthropic club that focuses on local children and families, and it’s looking for new members.

Club member Sharon Singer touted the club’s local value, noting that the proceeds of its fundraisers go back into the community.

The only membership requirement to become one of the Old Bags of Arlington is to be a woman 39 years or older.

The club meets on the first Friday of the month at noon in the Arlington Boys & Girls Club, located at 18513 59th Ave. NE.
