2017 50-50 drawing
Tucson, AZ, September 20-23, 2017
Even if you can't make it, you can be there in spirit and join in the fun.  
webassets/thCA4QT0N7.jpg 

 Our annual 50-50 drawing is the biggest fundraiser that we have to support the organization.  Every penny that we collect is added up and split right down the middle. Half goes to offset Association costs and the other half is split between 3 lucky sailors. You do not have to be present at the reunion to play or win.  If your name is drawn as one of our lucky sailors, we will mail you a check.
Here is a chance to cash in on some big bucks. The more we sell, the bigger the prizes!  Ticket sales for the 50-50 will continue until just before the drawing, which will be at the Friday evening banquet.
Send your check; $10.00 for each 12 tickets along with some of those pesky return address labels that regularly appear in your mailbox.
Our treasurer will take care of the funds and will even stick the address labels on the tickets. 
Make your checks payable to USS Benjamin Stoddert Association and mail to:

John Dishaw
3035 Charlotte Street
Newbury Park, CA 91320

Click below, choose your tickets and pay with PayPal...we will generate your tickets on the computer and send you an email copy.

 The Benjamin Stoddert was a great ship from the beginning to the day that she sank in the Pacific and to this day (unlike so many other old ships) remains "underway with no way on". B.C.
