MWRines and Friends of MWR –
It’s time again for our annual Christmas Raffle! This year promises to be the biggest and best yet. There will be prizes from some of our best known and long time sellers on MWR as well as individual donations.
Tickets are $25.00 each, or four for $100* and you may purchase as many as you like. If you buy 4 tickets at $100.00*, you will receive a 5th ticket free (5th ticket will be calculated at no additional cost at time of draw.). As you know, all proceeds will go to a bona fide charity. This is your chance to possibly win a great prize and make a worthy donation!
* Special note: There is a transaction fee charge to offset the Paypal surcharge. We are trying to keep the donation as close to multiples of $25 as possible. Thanks for your understand in this matter.
Paypal is the preferred purchase method. I will acknowledge via email every ticket purchase. If you must use the mail to send a check, send it to me: R. Levenson, 135 East 50th Street, Suite 110, New York, NY 10022. I will deposit your check and when it clears I will deposit the funds into the MWR Drawing Paypal account and send you an acknowledgement. Again, direct Paypal payments are preferred, please. Questions? Please email me: email@example.com
Please use the Paypal button to make payment:
Last day to purchase will be December 21, 2008. The drawing will end at 1300 hours PST.
Donations typically come from individual members and those sellers of quality merchandise who advertise with regularity on the PX. Items can be watches, straps, bracelets, watch tools, books, a watch service and regulation by a reputable watchperson who is well-known to MWRines, and other items that have stimulated interest on the PX such knives, survival gear, clothing, etc. Please do not pledge a donation if you do not intend to follow through. Last year we had an issue with that in at least one case.
If you would like to donate an item for the Drawing, please email Billy (billy@*REMOVE-SPAM*mwrforum.net to advise him of your donation and to obtain additonal details.

We are accepting all donations, as usual. Appropriate donations include watches, watch-related items such as straps, cases, winders, knives, in short - anything of that might be of interest to a MWRine as per our Unplugged themes. Also, we are continuing to work on a Grand Prize. Stay tuned for more on what the prize will be.
If you would like to donate an item, please email Billy and let him know exactly what you are donating - DO NOT MAIL BILLY THE DONATED ITEM!. This year we are attempting to cut down on costs (i.e., postage) by asking people who donate items to mail them directly to the winner - Billy will coordinate this and be the go-between as well.
