Hello E-mail Friends, Here I am again with my annual plea to help raise money for Florida Council of the Blind, an advocacy organization that I belong to. We work to promote independence and dignity among people in Florida who are blind or have low-vision, and advocate for access to transportation, employment, and information. We also have an outreach organization, Project Insight with a dedicated phone line for people who have recently lost or are losing their sight, (850) 422-7752 or (800) 267-4448. Callers are referred to resources and peer counselors who are available throughout the state. We have raffle tickets available again this year. They are 6 tickets for $5 or $1.00 per ticket. The prizes are: $1,000, $500, $400, $300, $200, and $100 cash, as well as several other valuable prizes donated by our Chapters and special interest affiliates. So, won't you take a chance and support a great cause? It's a fantastic opportunity to help support a worthy cause and possibly win some "jack"! It's also a win-win, knowing you've helped in a meaningful way! If you are interested in purchasing tickets or making a donation, checks should be made out to Tallahassee Council of the Blind or TCB and sent to me at the address listed below. I will be happy to complete the ticket stubs for you with your name, address and phone number and send you your portion. And, most importantly, I will insure they get into that drawing! The drawing will be held on Saturday, May 18th at our annual convention in Orlando. (You don't need to be present to win) but, we'd love to have you come share in our convention! Thanks for taking time to read my note and considering my request for support! Call, write or e-mail me with any questions. My contact information is below. Have a spectacular and productive day! Sila Miller 2201 Limerick Drive Tallahassee, FL 32309 850) 251-5556 silam@xxxxxxxxxxxxx p.s. If you're someone who I have more than 1 e-mail address for, my apologies for the duplication. Forgive me please. Thanks!
