Dear Officers, Brother & Sister Members, and Friends,
The New York Department of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War is reaching out for your support.
Each year the New York Department holds its Annual Fundraiser. This year, I have been charged to organize
and manage the Department Fundraiser and we are going to have two Fundraisers. One will be the traditional
Raffle, find enclosed two booklets that contain six tickets each. Each ticket is a $1.00 donation or six for $5.00,
Twelve tickets for $10.00 (two full books). The other raffle will be for “an original design scrap quilt in the Civil
War-style, created using reproduction fabric, and blocks typical in the mid-nineteenth century often used in
quilts as signs of the Underground Railroad (queen-size)”. Enclosed please find a booklet of six tickets each
noting the Quilt Raffle (different color). Each ticket is a $5.00 donation, or all six tickets for $25.00. Visit the
Department at nysuvcw.org for a complete list of prizes and a picture of the quilt. The drawing will be held at
the 138th Department of New York Encampment on May 15, 2021. Additional tickets can be obtained by
contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
