State Retiree Council to hold annual fundraiser April 20

Gopher Retiree Sept-Oct 2012.pubThe Minnesota State Retiree Council, AFL-CIO, will hold its 10th annual fundraiser Saturday, April 20, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Sheet Metal Workers Local 10 Hall, 1681 Cope Avenue in Maplewood.

Admission is free, and there will be free food, free parking and music.

This is not a “retirees-only” occasion. Rather, it is an opportunity for active and retired union members, along with their families, to socialize and meet new people.

The fundraiser will feature hourly raffles, a silent auction and drawings for cash prizes of $300, $200, $100 and two $50 prizes. Retiree Council members have been selling raffle tickets for months. To purchase tickets for the raffle, call 651-227-7647. Ticket-holders need not be present to win.

Proceeds from the fundraiser support the Minnesota AFL-CIO State Retiree Council’s mission of educating union retirees about a variety of public policy issues, including their rights as senior citizens, and encouraging political action.
