We will be asking each club to donate either a basket of items that represents their area of the Commonwealth or let us do the work for you and donate $50 in cash or in $35-$50 in gift cards (that can be used across the Commonwealth) and we will make the basket. We are Scratching the Dollar Gifts this year and instead are asking each member to bring 10 $1 PA Lottery Scratch Offs! Your clubs will be receiving a letter from us very soon with more details on these items. We are also planning a raffle but the details are still being worked out.

Stay tuned for more information and remember, “Ain’t no party like a Scranton party ‘cause a Scranton party don’t stop!” Co-Chairs – Susan Notarianni, MaryAnn Kapacs and Cathy Wechsler.
