Fun‘raiser Ticket Auction
The fun’raiser is a ticket auction for gifts that you donate. Proceeds benefit our League projects and here is how it works: For a $10 donation you will receive 20 tickets for a chance to win donated gifts. Cash is preferred for ticket purchases.
If you wish to participate, please bring an unwrapped re-gift or something new (also unwrapped) to donate – with a value of $20 or less! Something representative of the holidays, something voting-related, a fantastic book you have read, etc. You may bring it by 9:45 a.m. on the day of the brunch or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange to pick it up.
Donated gifts will be displayed on a long table. Each gift will have a container in front of it where you will place your ticket(s). Distribute your tickets any way you like – all in one container, one in each container, or anything in between. At the end of the brunch, tickets will be drawn from each container to determine the lucky winners.
Split the Pot Raffle
This is another opportunity to support our League projects. $1 per ticket or $10 for 20 tickets. Cash is preferred for ticket purchases. At the end of the brunch, one winner will split the pot with LWVTallahassee.

Voter Services Activities 2022
The LWV Tallahassee will be busy this year due to elections. The Primary Election is August 23, 2022. Early Voting in Leon County is from August 13 through August 21. The General Election is November 8, 2022. Early Voting in Leon County is from October 24 through November 6. For those in other counties, check with your Supervisor of Elections for their Early Voting dates.
We will be staffing voter registration and education tables at the Tallahassee Downtown Market most Saturdays, as well as the Southside Farmer’s Market, which usually is open two Thursday afternoons per month. Stop by to register to vote or update your current registration and learn about new laws that affect all Florida voters. We strongly encourage voters to go to Early Voting whenever possible. However, we also encourage you to request a Vote-by-Mail ballot from your county’s Supervisor of Elections as a back-up in case something happens, such as an illness, that prevents you from voting in person.
The LWV Tallahassee is available to provide voter registration and education for nonpartisan organizations, such as community groups, sororities/fraternities, other university-affiliated organizations, religious organizations, senior groups, city or county events, etc.
Your health and that of our community is of the utmost importance to us. Thus, the League will take Covid precautions that are appropriate to the setting and local circumstances.
