CANCELLED: TRTF Fundraising Raffle: April 1, 2019 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.

Due to an unforeseen health incident, the TRTF raffle has been cancelled.

We know many TRTA districts have already begun the work of putting together baskets. We appreciate the sincere efforts you have made to support the Foundation, and we apologize for the inconvenience. Our hope is to organize another fundraising opportunity for TRTF for the 2020 convention.

If you already have created your gift basket, we ask that you please consider conducting the raffle in your own district (and utilize the funds as you see fit for your district or local units) or consider providing the basket as a gift to a member or perhaps a visiting legislator or guest speaker.

Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and we ask that you please keep our event organizer in your prayers as she recovers.

TRTF Training Session: April 2, 2019 9:45 a.m.

TRTF will hold a training session for District Foundation Liaisons and Local Unit Foundation Representatives on Tuesday, April 2 at 9:45 a.m. in Room 414.

Training will cover various topics such as fundraising at the district and local unit levels and processing applications for "A Helping Hand."

We hope to see you there!
