Unfortunately, this formally cancels the social event we normally hold as part of the Annual Temple Raffle. As previously stated here, should this lead you to prefer a refund of your ticket purchase, please ask the individual from whom you bought your ticket and we will refund the cost of your ticket. We will update this page later in the week with details for the live streaming of the Raffle draw.
To confirm, the Raffle will be held on August 29th, as scheduled. While the social component has been canceled, we have set up a Facebook page to Livestream the pulling of tickets. Starting at 7PM, we will start our traditional reverse draw, with the last ticket drawn winning the Grand Prize. Here is the link to the Facebook page:
