ATMF Raffle

The 2018 Annual General Membership Meeting was held on July 27th at the TC Museum.  This was an important meeting since we held our annual elections for the Board of Directors and announce the winners of our annual raffle.  A short biographical sketch of the Board nominees can be found by clicking on the "About Us" tab.


OUR RAFFLE HAS CHANGED!

Ladies and Gentlemen.


We have had to make a substantial change to our annual raffle. These changes are a result of a recent publication of Air Force Instruction (AFI) 34-223, “Private Organization Program.”

The Army Transportation Museum Foundation (ATMF) is a private organization authorized to operate on Ft. Eustis. As such, we must adhere to the governing regulations and/or instructions published by the governing service. In this case, the governing service is the Air Force since, as a result of BRAC 2005, Joint Base Langley-Eustis was established. 

The ATMF was required to submit an application to the 633rd Force Support Squadron at Langley in order to hold our 
fundraising raffle. That request was reviewed by the legal office at Langley who then sought clarification from Headquarters Air Force regarding our monetary prizes. We thought we could award monetary prizes since the AFI indicated, “Raffles conducted strictly for a monetary prize are not authorized on the installation.” So we were going to add two non-monetary prizes along with three monetary prizes. But, the Air Force legal opinion said we could not. They did say we could award gift cards as long as those cards are not VISA or Mastercard
type gift cards.


So, we are going to hold our raffle. We will award a 
mixture of prizes to include gift cards from Amazon, or Home Depot or Lowes as well as an 8x8 engraved brick and a 4x8 engraved brick. We hope that our loyal Patrons will continue to support our raffle as they have in the past. We certainly wish we could conduct our raffle as we have in the past, but we must comply with the AFI and guidance we’ve received from the 633 rd FSS.


Here are the prizes for this year’s raffle:

1st Prize: $1200 gift card from Amazon or Home Depot (winner picks)


2nd Prize: $750 gift card from Amazon or Home Depot (winner picks)

3rd Prize: $500 gift card from Amazon, Home Depot or Lowes (winner picks)


4th Prize: 8”x8” Engraved Brick ($225 value)
