****MWR 2009 Christmas Charity Event****
MWRines and Friends of MWR –
Welcome to the 2009 Military Watch Resource (MWR) 10th Annual Christmas Charity Event! This year promises to be the biggest and best yet. There will be door prizes from some of our best known and long time sellers on MWR as well as individual donations.
Tickets to the event are $30.00 each, or four for $120* and you may purchase as many as you like. If you buy 4 tickets at $120.00*, you will receive a 5th ticket free (5th ticket will be calculated at no additional cost to you.). As you know, all proceeds will go to our charity, The Special Olympics. This is your chance to participate in a great charity event, and possibly win a great door prize and make a worthy and charitable donation!
Last day to purchase will be December 24, 2009. The event will end at 18:00 hours PST.
Donations typically come from individual members and those sellers of quality merchandise who advertise with regularity on the PX. Items can be watches, bracelets, watch tools, books, a watch service and regulation by a reputable watchperson who is well-known to MWRines, and other items that have stimulated interest on the PX such knives, survival gear, clothing, etc.
If you would like to donate an item for the Event, please email Billy (billy@*REMOVE-SPAM*mwrforum.net to advise him of your donation and to obtain additional details.

We are accepting all donations, as usual. Appropriate donations include watches, watch-related items such as straps, cases, winders, knives, in short - anything of that might be of interest to a MWRine as per our Unplugged themes. Also, we are continuing to work on a Grand Prize. Stay tuned for more on what the prize will be.
If you would like to donate an item, please email Billy and let him know exactly what you are donating - DO NOT MAIL BILLY THE DONATED ITEM!. This year we are attempting to cut down on costs (i.e., postage) by asking people who donate items to mail them directly to the winner - Billy will coordinate this and be the go-between as well.
