Columbiettes Annual Charity Ball--Held each year around Valentines Day, this event is used by the Columbiettes as a major fund raiser to support various charities. In addition to a full dinner, many prizes are raffled off.
$50 Raffle--A raffle with total prizes worth $8,800 and a top prize of $5,000 is held each July. This event is the prime source of income to pay our school and local property taxes. There are only 400 tickets available at $50 each for this drawing. To purchase a ticket click here.
Garage Sale--Each Memorial Day weekend the Columbiettes hold a Garage Sale on the council grounds. Donations, excluding electronics, are happily accepted during the Spring collection period.
Craft Fair--The Columbiettes sponsor a Craft Fair in the Fall. Crafters from all over the region have many wonderful items for sale. There is music to enjoy and refreshments are available.
Monthly Corporation Club 50/50 Raffle--Each month a drawing is held for members who participate in the Corporation Club Raffle. A $10 donation is all that's needed to give you a chance to win. The only way to take part in the drawing is to register at the Social Parlor.
Daily $.50 Drawing--Each day a drawing is held at the Social Parlor for a progressive jackpot raffle. All members are eligible for the prize but you must stop by the Social Parlor and make a purchase and contribute $.50 to the pool.
THE PROCESS: Each member has been assigned an ID#. Every night, a member's number is drawn. If that member is signed-in for that day, he or she will have won the amount of the pool. If the member whose number is drawn has not signed-in, the amount collected for that day will roll over to the next day and continue doing so until a member who has signed in has his/her number drawn.
Used Clothing Drop-Off Shed--We have a entered into an agreement with St. Pauly's
Textiles Inc., a Western NY based, family owned for-profit company and an A+ member
of the Better Business Bureau. Their goal is to get USEABLE clothing to people who can
use it, here in the U.S. and in developing countries, while having a meaningful impact in
our local communities. The shed is located at the back of our parking lot, located at
328 Troy-Schenectady Rd. in Latham. The money raised from this project is used to
support both the Knights an Columbiettes in their charitable endeavors.
