Friday, June 26, 2020Women in Leadership

Rescheduled for 2021 - Women in Leadership Conference

Update 6/15/2020

We were working with the theme of "And this is my Journey" and had pages of notes on speakers, sessions, content, fun, food to bring another Women in Leadership Conference to the Mid-Ohio Valley at the end of June. That was in February and March, then everything changed!

Well, we are certainly still on a journey but it's just going to look different now. The great thing? It's still about growth, and learning, and engagement. Our committee is brainstorming ways to bring training, mini virtual sessions you can do at your leisure, break out rooms so that we can still network and other cool goodies to us this fall - all to prepare us for a bigger and better Women in Leadership conference for 2021.

Ready to learn more and join us on this journey? Please click the link below to join the MOV Chamber Sisterhood Group where you will be the first to learn about activities for the fall.

Luck of the Draw tickets go on-sale today - July 30

Luck of the Draw tickets go on-sale today - July 30

Here’s your chance to support the MOV Chamber AND be in the running to win $1000! It’s the Luck of the Draw reverse drawing!

 

The work of the Chamber continues to ramp up, but several of our events, like the Women in Leadership Conference, have had to be postponed until next year. We are not ones to hang up our fiddles! We need your help to raise needed funds for your two favorite buckaroos to continue our mission through the end of the year.

 

Ok, cowpokes, gather ‘round. Here’s the scoop on the Luck of the Draw reverse drawing!

 

How’s this work?

From sun up on July 1 to sun down on July 31, we will be selling 100 Tickets for $100 each at the Chamber Saloon (otherwise known as in this email or over the phone.)

 

Have a lucky number?

Select that number on the order form OR just as the name implies, randomly pick one of the ticket numbers for your Luck of the Draw entry. Click REGISTER to confirm your number and the next step is to pay by credit card on-line. Prefer to use the Pony Express (regular mail)? That works too - just make sure we receive it before close of business on July 30 to reserve that number.

 

Don’t go dodging the law - numbers that have been reserved but not paid for by July 30 will be released for final last-minute sales on Friday, July 31.

 

I have 2 lucky numbers!

Guess what, prospector? You can purchase more than one ticket with all those gold coins and the paper money you’ve saved up. Or maybe you purchase one, your spouse purchases another, and so on… Please know the money is going to a great cause - YOUR Chamber of Commerce - so your generosity is greatly appreciated! To put it in cowpoke’s terms, you’ll be saving our bacon! And by getting more than one ticket, you’ve increased your chances of winning. (The only requirement is you must be over 21 to participate.)

 

When will you draw the tickets?

On Friday, August 7 at 7pm in the evening, we invite you to join us on-line via Zoom and Facebook Live as we draw ticket numbers. Your goal is to be the last ticket drawn and that ticket holder wins $1000. No bamboozling!

 

The week of August 3 we will bring you a fun Goody Bag with some notions (theme-related activities and munchies) so that you can play along from home, watching and waiting for your ticket to be drawn. There might be some specially marked items in the goody bags that will award other prizes, so best to keep it sealed up until 7pm on August 7 or the Chamber Sheriff might come round you up!

 

What about the rest of the tickets?*

In this situation being the first ticket drawn is not where you want to be, so we will award the first ticket with their $100 investment back.

The 10th, 20th, 30th, 40th and 50th Tickets drawn each receive $125.

The 60th, 70th, 80th and 90th Tickets drawn each receive $150.

The 91st, 92nd, 93rd, 94th and 95th tickets drawn each receive $175.

The 96th ticket drawn receives $200.

The 97th ticket drawn receives $250.

The 98th ticket drawn receives $300.

And the 99th Ticket drawn receives $500.

*Assumes all 100 tickets are sold. If less than 100 tickets are sold, the prize payout may be modified.

 

All non-winning tickets will be put into second chance drawings for cool door prizes and certificates donated by area businesses.

 

So, make hay while the sun shines and get yer’ ticket today!

Here’s your chance to support the MOV Chamber AND be in the running to win $1000!

It’s the Luck of the Draw reverse drawing!

 

The work of the Chamber continues to ramp up, but several of our events, like the Women in Leadership Conference, have had to be postponed until next year. We are not ones to hang up our fiddles! We need your help to raise needed funds for your two favorite buckaroos to continue our mission through the end of the year. 

 

Ok, cowpokes, gather ‘round. Here’s the scoop on the Luck of the Draw reverse drawing!

 

How’s this work?

From sun up on July 1 to sun down on July 31, we will be selling 100 Tickets for $100 each at the Chamber Saloon (otherwise known as in this email or over the phone.)

 

Have a lucky number? 

Select that number on the order form OR just as the name implies, randomly pick one of the ticket numbers for your Luck of the Draw entry. Click REGISTER to confirm your number and the next step is to pay by credit card on-line. Prefer to use the Pony Express (regular mail)? That works too – just make sure we receive it before close of business on July 30 to reserve that number. 

Don’t go dodging the law - numbers that have been reserved but not paid for by July 30 will be released for final last-minute sales on Friday, July 31.

 

I have 2 lucky numbers!

Guess what, prospector? You can purchase more than one ticket with all those gold coins and the paper money you’ve saved up. Or maybe you purchase one, your spouse purchases another, and so on… Please know the money is going to a great cause – YOUR Chamber of Commerce – so your generosity is greatly appreciated! To put it in cowpoke’s terms, you’ll be saving our bacon! And by getting more than one ticket, you’ve increased your chances of winning. (The only requirement is you must be over 21 to participate.)

 

When will you draw the tickets?

On Friday, August 7 at 7pm in the evening, we invite you to join us on-line via Zoom and Facebook Live as we draw ticket numbers. Your goal is to be the last ticket drawn and that ticket holder wins $1000. No bamboozling!

The week of August 3 we will bring you a fun Goody Bag with some notions (theme-related activities and munchies) so that you can play along from home, watching and waiting for your ticket to be drawn. There might be some specially marked items in the goody bags that will award other prizes, so best to keep it sealed up until 7pm on August 7 or the Chamber Sheriff might come round you up!   

 

What about the rest of the tickets? 

In this situation being the first ticket drawn is not where you want to be, so we will award the first ticket with their $100 investment back. 

Tickets 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 each receive $125. 

Tickets 60, 70, 80 and 90 each receive $150.

Ticket 91, 92, 93, 94 and 95 each receive $175.

Ticket 96 receives $200.

Ticket 97 receives $250.

Ticket 98 receives $300.

And Ticket 99 receives $500.

All non-winning tickets will be put into second chance drawings for cool door prizes and certificates donated by area businesses.

So, make hay while the sun shines and get yer’ ticket today!
