Generate some excitement and make your purse fun.  Feel free to stuff the purse with a fun surprise. Show your creativity creating a one-of-a kind gift.  Anything inside the purse will be kept secret until the winner opens the bag.  

 

All of the proceeds from the purse raffle will be used for conference scholarships for students/interns interested in child nutrition.   

 

Conference Attendees will be able to purchase tickets to enter for a chance to win.  Tickets will be sold 6 for $5.00 or a baker’s dozen (13) for $10.00. A random drawing will be held and the winners announced at the Wednesday morning general session. Cash, checks, and credit cards will be accepted.  You must be present to win.

 

We will plan to have enough table space for the purses to be displayed. Please contact Cathy Conklin at conklinc79@gmail.com or April Cuddeback at snaiowa@msn.com by May 1st  indicating your interest in donating a purse for the raffle.
