Eagles hosting $10,000 Extravaganza

By TRAVIS WEIK - tweik@thecouriertimes.com

The New Castle Eagles want the community to get excited about supporting local groups.

What better way to do that than by giving away a lot of money?

“Someone will win $10,000,” said Connie Hale, manager of the Eagle’s bar.

Eagles #933 is located just west of New Castle. The fraternal lodge raises money throughout the year with gaming events and benefit rides.

They have raised money for fire victims, supported local youth sports teams, contributed to Believe and Achieve Mentoring (B.A.M.!), participated in Relay for Life and supported the Diabetes Research Center in Iowa.

 “We always try to donate to the kids,” Hale said.

Hale said New Castle Eagles gave at least $30,000 back to the local community last year.

The Eagles #933 $10,000 Extravaganza is one more way for the group to raise money and have fun at the same time.

The $10,000 Extravaganza starts at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 3 at the Eagles, 14 N. County Road 25 W.

There are 150 tickets total, at $100 each. Each ticket includes a meal for two and chances to win drawings.

Hale and Brenda Grider are selling tickets to the Extravaganza. As of Wednesday, there were only about 100 left.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Hale said. “There will be a lot of games and things throughout the afternoon.”

The Extravaganza will include prize drawings, raffles and other fundraising games.

There will also be a Last Chance drawing for those folks whose tickets didn’t win the first time around.

Hale explained tickets will be drawn down to the final 10, including the Last Chance ticket. Then those will be drawn down to the final five.

That’s when things will get really interesting. The final five ticket holders will have the chance to split the top prize or keep pressing their luck to go home with $10,000 in their pocket.

Participants in the Eagles #933 $10,000 Extravaganza have to be 21 years old to buy a ticket. Ticket holders or their proxy have to be present to win.

Eagles #933 gaming number is 147395.

Money raised from the Extravaganza will go into the Eagles’ gaming fund and back into the local community.
