Chapel Center Treasure Sale and Restaurant Raffle, Nov. 18 & 19

Barbara Reiss

The Sun Lakes Chapel Board is having its 12th annual Treasure Sale plus a restaurant raffle. Top prize for the restaurant raffle is $100 at Starbucks plus four dinners at different restaurants. There will be at least 12 winners of multiple dinners for two.

The Treasure Sale will be held on Friday, November 18 from 7:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. and Saturday, November 19 from 7:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. It will be held at the Chapel Center in Sun Lakes Country Club. The Treasure Sale is a place where you can get a bargain on almost anything. The selection of items is enormous and the prices are ridiculously low. Items run from furniture to knickknacks. If you cannot find what you want at this sale, it probably does not exist.

If you have items to donate, please leave them in the back porch of the Chapel Center, or if they are too large for you to move, call Butch at 480-883-7095 and he will arrange help for you. Please, no clothing, large TVs or other large electronics or appliances.

We will also be having our sixth annual restaurant raffle. The raffle winners will be drawn at the Treasure Sale on November 19 at 1:00 p.m.

The restaurants who generously became part of this are (in alphabetical order) Abuelo’s, Asian Grill Restaurant, Black Angus, California Pizza, Carrabba’s, Chase Diner, Cheddars, Chompies, Don and Charlies, Fired Pie, Fleming’s, Floridino, Iron Oaks, Keegan’s, Kneader’s, Kona Grill, La Casa Blanca, Majerli’s, Outback, Papa Murphy’s, Pasta Brioni, Pita Jungle, Singing Panda, Starbucks, Stone and Vine, Sun Lakes Country Club, Sweet Tomatoes, Tom’s B.B.Q., Tao Garden and Village Inn. More to come.

Raffle tickets are $1 each; seven tickets for $5, 15 tickets for $10 or 35 tickets for $20. They can be purchased from congregation members or call 480-802-3281.

All the money from both of the events will go to the maintenance of the Sun Lakes Chapel and the Chapel Center, which hosts four congregations: the Sun Lakes Community Church, the Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation, the Sun Lakes Lutheran Church and the Sun Lakes Church of Christ.

You cannot win unless you buy a ticket, so be sure to get yours before 1:00 p.m. on November 19 at the Treasure Sale. You do not have to be present to win.
