Announcing our “Bus Basket”


April 1, 2021- May 2022

Ticket cost: one ticket for $5 or five tickets for $20. *If every club member buys one ticket and sells one ticket, we will be able to meet our goal of $35,000. Let’s strive for 100% participation.

“Bus Tickets” will be distributed to the district presidents who in turn will distribute them to the club presidents. The drawing for the basket will take place at the GFWC Virginia Annual Convention in Spring 2022.

*Please note: 80% of the proceeds will go to the State Project, “Hop on the Bus”, and 20% will go to the district of the winning ticket for that district’s project or approved charity.
