Cedar Lane Annual $10,000 Raffle

Dear Friend,

As the President and CEO of Cedar Lane Senior Living Community, I want to thank you once again your support of last year’s $10,000 raffle.  The raffle is Cedar Lane’s major annual fundraiser, and provides funding for programs and facility improvements. In fact, the proceeds from last year’s raffle were paired with a generous private donation to help us complete Phase I of our Resident Dining Room Renovation Project.  Thanks, in part, to your support, our residents now enjoy a more comfortable and inviting dining room complete with warm paint; crown molding; new carpet; new, brighter lighting; and new, handicap-accessible tables and chairs.  I am hoping you will continue to help enhance the lives of the residents at Cedar Lane by lending your support to this year’s raffle.

Cedar Lane is the oldest and largest non-profit senior housing community in Leonardtown, Maryland.  For 36 years, we have provided affordable housing, assisted living, socialization and support services to enable low- and moderate-income seniors to age in place in the community they love. Many of the more than 200 seniors that call Cedar Lane home rely on our various amenities and services to stay active and engaged; and 90 percent of our residents depend on our assistance with meals, medication management and housekeeping to maintain their health, independence and quality of life.

In difficult economic times like these we need the support of the community more than ever to help ensure that we can continue to meet the needs of low-income seniors and disabled adults.  Our Annual $10,000 Raffle is an easy and fun way for you to lend your support and to help us continue this vital work.

I hope you will support this very worthwhile cause by purchasing one or more raffle tickets today. This year’s drawing will be held on Friday, November 29, 2013 during the Christmas on the Square & Annual Christmas Tree Lighting at Leonardtown Square. Tickets are $100 each, and with a maximum of 500 tickets being sold, the odds of winning are very favorable.

Remember a maximum of only 500 tickets will be sold, so don’t delay!  If you prefer, you can call me at my number listed below or email me at  with your request and I will reserve a ticket for you.

Please make your check payable to “Friends of Cedar Lane” and mail to my attention at Cedar Lane Senior Living Community 22680 Cedar Lane Court, Leonardtown, Maryland 20650.

Thank you in advance for helping to make a difference in the lives of seniors and disabled adults. 
And, good luck!
