A few weeks ago I was asked to help out on a great gesture by BC Lions cornerback Dante Marsh. Dante recently had a few paintings commissioned commemorating his time with the Lions, and he’s generously offered to donate one to raise money for CFL Fans Fight Cancer.
I’ll be selling raffle tickets for this great cause starting this Saturday at the tailgate party in Lot 9 at Empire Field. Tickets are $10.00 each and only 50 tickets are available giving you a great chance to win this rare piece. The goal is to sell all 50 tickets, with $200.00 going to cover the cost of the painting and $300.00 going to CFL Fans Fight Cancer. If it can be arranged, Dante would like to present the winner with this painting as well.
For several years now CFL fans across the country have been raising funds for Cancer treatment and research. Last year in BC we donated $2533.00 to Hannah’s Heroes Foundation. Our fund raising has fallen behind this year, but we hope to have a few more events before the year is over.
A couple of pictures have been posted here for you to check out what’s up for grabs in the raffle! If youre intersted in trying to win this rare and limited edition Lions collectible, you can find me in the northwest corner of Lot 9 at Empire Field between 10:00am and game time on Saturday. Get your tickets fast because I don’t think they will last long!
A winner will be drawn on Monday, November 22nd and announced here and on DanteMarsh.com. The winner will also be notified by phone.
Thanks to Dante Marsh and to Jeff Armstead of InTheTunnel.com for stepping up to help CFL Fans Fight Cancer!
