EA Raffle to help the family of Jeremy LaRue

Post by panzermk2wife » 06 Jul 2013, 22:45

It’s been a while since we have done a raffle of any kind. But the reason we are doing this raffle is to help raise funds for the LaRue family. Who are the LaRue family you ask?

Jeremy LaRue was our FedEx driver for the past 5 years. This means he was contracted by FedEx as a small business owner. He did not have medical or life insurance as these are both very expensive for any small business owner.

Last Sunday, June 30, 2013 he was in a motorcycle accident and was flown to the nearest hospital where he died about an hour later. So as you can imagine the medical bills & funeral bills his wife Sonia and 2 daughters will be faced with.

Jeremy was a good person. When my boys were younger and not in school yet he would let them help bring our packages to his truck even though it would slow down his pickup and delivery schedule because they could only carry 1 or 2 boxes at a time. But he was happy to let them help. And because of his patience and kindness to the boys we felt we needed to do something to help is family.

100% of the proceeds from this fundraiser will be given to his wife Sonia.

We are raffling off ONE 5.7x28mm Accurizing job which is valued at $350.95.

We as a family based company will also match dollar for dollar of the amount raised by this fundraiser.

$20.00 per ticket entry

$10.00 donation only-No entry in the raffle

Raffle Tickets will be sold through Thursday, July 18, 2013

You will be emailed your raffle ticket number(s)

We will pull the winning ticket sometime on Saturday, July 20, 2013.

An email will be sent out to those who have participated in the raffle along with the winning number as well as on our website.

Sorry Lisa. My browser isn't refreshing, but I sent you a PM.
Curious if Paypal is an option now since this isn't a 'gun related' issue?

I know I should have used our credit card processor but had opted to use PayPal as most people are familiar with them.

Well I just received an email from PayPal stating that I am in violation of their policy. So I have disabled the PayPal Buttons on our website and those that were sent in the email earlier. And I requested a bank transfer sooner than I wanted to. I will let everyone know if PayPal has honored the transfer by 7/12/13

I have it now set up through our credit card processor. Please follow the link below:
