Aurora Legion, 105 Industrial Parkway North, Aurora

$25 per ticket


Contact Mae Sung at 140vicechair@gmail.com for tickets.


The Squadron Sponsoring Committee (SSC) is responsible for fundraising for the operations of the Squadron.


Tag  Days are the Squadron's main fundraiser.  Cadets sell tags in front of  local Aurora businesses.  Cadets must sign up for at least 3 (three)  shifts.  Parents are asked to assist by volunteering to drive the cadets  to their posts.  


Lottery  ticket sales are a big portion of fundraising for the Squadron.  Each  cadet must sell at least one book of 12 tickets for $60.  Books must be  paid for in advance and can be obtained from any SSC member. Lottery  ticket stubs must be returned once the tickets are sold. Enjoy Gliding?  Proceeds from those tickets go to maintain the tow plane and glider  fleet.  


A $70 assessment fee must be paid on enrollment and annually.  


Other  fundraising activities may be conducted during the year.  Please  participate wherever you can.  Our Squadron's financial health depends  on it.
