The pandemic has shut down the Mansfield Women’s Club’s annual Holiday Tour of Homes, but these ladies still have charities to support.
“This year I’m afraid no one would let us in their house,” said Karen Payton, chairperson for the MWC raffle. “But we’re still having the holiday raffle.”
Raffle tickets are $10 each, and only 800 will be sold. There are three prizes up for grabs: a $750 gift card, a $300-plus holiday wine basket and a $250 restaurant card gift basket.
“You have to be 21 to buy a ticket because of the wine basket,” Payton said, “but you don’t have to be present to win. We will draw the winners at our Dec. 3 lunch meeting and call all the winners to let them know.”
Tickets can be purchased at the Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio, 1219 E. Debbie Lane, Suite 113, or at Poured Wine Bar, 1601 E. Debbie Lane, Suite 1105. Cash or checks made to MWC will be accepted. Mansfield Women’s Club members will also be selling and delivering tickets.
The Women’s Club sponsors six $2,000 scholarships each year, one for each Mansfield ISD high school, and donated to 10 charities last year.
“Our main focus is on the health, welfare and education of women and children,” Payton said.
