Christmas Party

The Christmas Party Gun Raffle is one of our big fund raisers for the Chapter. This helps us carry out our events for the Chapter and fellow vets at the VA’s...and now that we support all three state VA CLC’s with pizza parties, the extra chapter income helps. Tickets are $5 each. The Gun Raffle info will be on the News and Notes page.  If you buy/sell them either mail the small ticket stub and the money to Al Forster (4852 W El Cortez PL, Phoenix, AZ 85083) or bring them to the Christmas party and give them to the “raffle bucket tender”. If you should need more tickets, contact Dan DuRocher or Keith Hendricks for more.

The Christmas Party this year is at the Briarwood Resort, in Sun City West. This location was great to the Chapter last year and the food and facilities are fantastic. And cost is still $35 per person for a full three item buffet. We will be having a beef, a chicken and a salmon dish. 

This is also a good time to pay your SFA dues if you are a “Annual” member. 

Don’t forget to make your reservation at the near by Days Inn. The number is 623-933-4000. Contact them and ensure you specify it is with the “Special Forces Association Holiday Party”, the room rate that has been agreed upon at about $70 (including tax) a night.
