State Charity Raffle Update #1

Worthy District Deputy and Grand Knights,

  1)  You should all have received your 2017 Charity Raffle Tickets, posters (Eng/Span) and Sales Guides by now.  If you have not, please contact me and I will either track your supply or resend them to you.

  2) Your Raffle Chairman should be well into the implementing your council sales plan.  Please provide me with the name and contact information for your council chairman ASAP.

  3) I have a limited supply of tickets, posters and sales guides still available on a first com-first shipped basis.  Let me know ASAP if you wish to have some of my remaining supply.

  4)  Posters are available on the State Website. FYI the posters are available in standard format as well as an editable format allowing you to post your charity on the poster.

  5) There are 2 versions of the sales guide on the website - an 8 page guide for councils comfortable with the program, and a more extensive 22 page version for councils wishing to review a more comprehensive guide - or perhaps if your chairman is new to the program.

Good Luck and God Bless you for your efforts.  Remember that your charity, your council and the state charities all benefit from your extra efforts.

Vivat Jesus,
Dennis Sullivan
DD #26, State Charity Raffle Director

Nationwide Rallies to defund PP


This coming weekend, February 11th & 12th, there will be rallies nationwide to Defund Planned Parenthood.  

I ask that you take time this weekend to participate in one of these events in the Phoenix area.  

I encourage you to wear Knights emblem apparel and remember to behave as Catholic Gentlemen at what can be a tense but necessary event.  It is only fair to let you know that Planned Parenthood has counter rallies planned at the same time.  Our participation and prayers are desperately needed to protect the unborn and those mothers considering abortion.

It is important to review and follow the guidelines contained so we conduct our Rally without reproach for our actions.  We will have many of the Knights "Protect Life" posters available.  These will be led by members of the Protect Life community.

Below is the information for the Tempe Rally and attached is the information about the Glendale Rally,

Saturday - Planned Parenthood Tempe Health Center.  We will pray on the public sidewalk in front of PP from 9 to 11 a.m. The clinic is on the NW corner of Apache Blvd and Dorsey Lane in Tempe.  There is plenty of parking along Dorsey Lane and in the lot behind the shopping center to the North.  

Thank you,

Sean E. Halpain
State Deputy
