Service Happy Hour and Raffle

Supporting the Wilmington VA Medical Center

Tyler’s Neighborhood Kitchen and Craft Beer (5343 Limestone Road, Wilmington, DE 19808)

Cost: $5

For the second year, the New Castle County Alumni Club is hosting happy hour with a purpose! This year, in recognition of Veteran’s Day, we will be collecting donations to directly support the Wilmington VA Medical Center.

Each guest must bring a donation for the Wilmington VA Medical Center. For each item that is donated, you earn one raffle ticket. So the more items you donate, the more chances to win! You earn one raffle ticket just for registering for the event.

Raffle prizes include gift certificates from local restaurants and business, gift baskets and more! Last year, we gave away more than $1,000 in prizes from our generous contributors!

Donations can include, but are not limited to: WaWa gift cards, personal items (e.g., deodorant, small cans of shaving cream, nail clippers, combs, razors, movie tickets, cleaning supplies, women’s personal hygiene items, etc.).

Light appetizers provided. Cash bar and dinner menu will be available.

For more information see our Facebook page.

This event is open to alumni and their guests age 21 and older.

Registration closes November 10. Registration is encouraged so we have a head count, but walk-ins are welcome. Bring a donation and $5 cover fe.

Refund deadline is November 7, 2016.
