Win A Wildwood Vacation And Help The Wildwood American Legion
The American Legion in Wildwood is offering a chance to win a package worth $2,200 for just $5, with all proceeds going towards the repair of the organization’s building, which is over 80 years old.
The raffle includes a two-night stay at The Five North Wildwood from June 9th-11th, $600 in dining gift certificates, four passes to Morey’s Piers, four tickets to mini golf, a $50 gift certificate to an old-time photo experience, two bottles of champagne, four Wildwood sweatshirts, and four Wildwood beach towels.
Tickets can be purchased for $5 each or 5 for $20, and the drawing will take place on Memorial Day at 1 PM, following the annual ceremony.
The tickets can be bought online at legion184.org or in person at the Canteen, and all the details are available through the online store or on the back of each ticket.
Commander Spyros Spyropoulos expressed his gratitude for the sponsors of the event, saying that the only cost incurred by the organization is the price of the tickets. The sponsors will be listed on the American Legion’s website and social media in the coming weeks, along with a special thank you.
In addition to this raffle, the American Legion has also carried out various community activities, such as a kid’s toy drive, Thanksgiving turkeys, veterans outreach, and financial support for projects from other organizations.
This year, Commander Spyropoulos plans to expand the benefits of membership to encourage new members to join the post. Any direct descendant of a veteran can join the Sons of the American Legion Squadron 184 or the Auxiliary Unit 184 and receive the same benefits, as well as access to the Canteen.
The American Legion has also planned new events for 2023, including a BBQ on June 11th, a benefit dinner on July 15th, and a Pig Roast on September 9th.
More information about these events and the American Legion can be found on their website, legion184.org.
