Happy Columbus Day Weekend!  Although the weather forecast doesn't sound perfect, it isn't a hurricane, so we will take it!

I am happy to be involved again in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Cape/ Atlantic Car Raffle, which culminates this Sunday with the live drawing at the Smithville Irish Festival.  This raffle is BBBS primary annual fundraiser and the money raised is crucial to their being able to do their good work for another year.

The raffle is also a chance to win your choice of brand new cars. Tickets are $1000 and only 1965 tickets will be sold. The odds are good and the choice of cars is unbeatable. BMWs, Acuras, Accords... which of the seven choices would you pick.

Join me and Lite Rock Sunday from noon to 2pm for the drawing and please consider buying one of the remaining tickets so we can sell out this year’s raffle again this year!
