UPDATE Dec. 15, 2020: The drawing is today, Dec. 15, so the raffle is now closed! Congrats to the lucky winners.

One tragic fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic is that the Old Mission Women’s Club will not be holding their annual Fancy Christmas Cookie Sale this year.

This is not only tragic for everyone who looks forward to those beautiful and delicious cookies each year, but also for the club, as most of their major fundraisers for the year have had to be canceled. This, in turn, affects all of the local non-profit groups that benefit from the club’s charitable giving.

However, all is not lost! Club President Janis Haine has organized an excellent alternative to the annual sale – a raffle! Five boxes of lovely holiday cookies will be raffled off to benefit the club’s charitible giving to local nonprofit groups.

Each box will contain five dozen – yes, five dozen – decorated sugar cookies and assorted other cookies, all crafted and baked by Janis, a professional caterer for the past 36 years.

You may have seen these beautiful boxes of cookies at the club’s cookie sale the past couple of years. Here’s Janis with a box last year.

Winners will be drawn December 15, 2020 (as there will be no cookie sale or gathering this year, you do not need to be present to win). The cookie boxes will be hand-delivered the week of Dec. 20 to each of the five winners. Tickets are $5 each or five tickets for $20.
