Hey guys! It's Smartie - the new raffle car for the Northern Door Children's Center annual car raffle. And am I ever excited! My big brother, Bee Smart, was last year's raffle car. He told me that every year the NDCC raffles off a car to help raise money to cover their general operating costs. Tickets are only $20 each for a chance to win Yours Truly and $5,000 cash! Pretty spiffy, huh?
I've been cooped up in the garage all winter, so believe me when tell you how excited I am about being the new raffle car this summer. I hear there's all kinds of neat stuff planned for me, starting with Maifest in Jacksonport Memorial Day weekend! I've never been to any kind of festival before, but I hear this one has a parade, fair rides, arts and crafts, and people food! I hope there are a lot of people there for me to meet. So far, I've met just about everyone at NDCC, but everyone's busy working and the kids are busy playing and learning. I can't wait to have my own play time!
My big brother told me that I'd being going to a lot of places around Door County and that it's a really cool place to hang out for the summer. He also said everyone is really nice, so I can't wait to start making friends! The people at NDCC even put together a calendar of events for me so all my new friends will know where to find me! The Lodge 106.9 FM will announce the calendar every two weeks so you can plan ahead . And if you want me to visit your business or come to an event, call me! It's what friends do, after all. The Center's number is (920) 854-4244 and ask for one of my two besties, Sam or Sue. You can also go to www.northerndoorchildrenscenter.org for more information on me, Smartie Smart, and to order tickets! If you win, we'll be best friends, and then I'll have some one to play with all the time! I hope it's you!
