Richard McNabb and Ron Rapoza of the Lt. Cyrus Garnsey III VFW Post 1323 in Seneca Falls present Cyndi Wing, Client Advocate at the House of Concern with a check for $2,000. McNabb said, “We got the letter from the House of Concern telling us about the greater need this year, so we were happy to be able to help out.”

Prizes for the drawing include a 32″ HD LCD TV, an iPod, A gift basket of products from local businesses, a basket of cheer and multiple chances for gift certificates. Tickets are $2 or 3 for $5.
