Care package campaign, Cowboys raffle nearing end

South Padre Parade

Eight more days remain for those in the American Military Support (AMS) campaign that calls for residents to help local troops stationed overseas and win a chance to see the Dallas Cowboys the process.

As previously reported, AMS is a nonprofit organization specializing in sending care (or “Quality of Life”) packages to Rio Grande Valley soldiers stationed overseas. But AMS co-founder Emma Alvarado said fans of America’s Team now have the opportunity to win a Dallas Cowboy family getaway to the Dec. 24 game in which Big D will take on the NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles by giving a small donation.

An AMS fundraiser consists of collecting a $3.00 donation to help pay for the distribution of the packages sent to Valley troops.

The incentive, other than supporting local soldiers, is that each donator will be entered into a raffle to win the aforementioned Cowboys package, which includes four tickets to the game and $300.00 spending money along with hotel accommodations (one day, one night), not to mention a $150.00 gas card. The winner will be selected in a raffle and announced Dec. 15, 2011.
