Convention is fast approaching and the National Association of Blind
Students is gearing up to be a part of it. Here are but a few of the
fundraising activities that we will be hosting at this year's annual
national convention, please support your one and only student

Back by popular demand, custom made slate and stylus carrying cases.
Do you always have to rummage through your backpack, briefcase, or
purse to find your slate and stylus? Don't you wish there was an
easier way to keep both of them together? Well fellow Federationists,
ask and you shall receive! NABS has once again partnered with
Stitchville of Ruston to bring you hand-made, sleek, and fashionable
carrying cases for your slate and stylus. You can order yours for the
very affordable price of $15 at the NABS exhibit hall table or by
contacting anyone on the NABS board.

We've all heard of 50/50 raffles but this year, NABS is proud to bring
to you a 60/40 raffle. Yes, how generous of us, we know! Should you be
the one to draw the lucky ticket you will get 60% of the pot, while
your friendly neighborhood student division keeps 40%. The only way
you can potentially walk away with a fat wad of cash however, is by
purchasing tickets. The more tickets we sell, the larger the prize
will be. It's easy and simple to enter, you can purchase 1 ticket for
$2, or you can purchase 3 tickets for $5. The more tickets you
purchase, the better your odds are to win! Purchase tickets at our
NABS exhibit hall table or by contacting any one of us on the NABS

As many of you know our casino-style game night popularly known as
Monte Carlo will once again be taking place at this year's convention
on Thursday July 4 from 8:00Pm to 11:30 PM in Salons 1 and 2, level 2
of the Rosen Center Hotel. However, what you may not know is that NABS
will be holding some of your Favorite Federationists hostage, and
they'll need your help to make bail and be released from NABS
captivity. Don't worry, they won't be tortured too badly. Come help
your fellow Federationists make bail.
At 8:00 PM NABS will be holding Joanne Wilson, Carl Jacobsen, and Joe
Ruffalo hostage. At 9:00 PM Ever Lee Hairston, Eric Guillory, and
Patti Chang will be in need of your help. And finally at 10:00 PM Anil
Lewis, Mary Fernandez, and Alex Castillo will be in NABS custody.
You won't want to miss this year's Monte Carlo Night, it is gearing up
to be quite the entertaining event.

to buy raffle tickets, please feel free to contact me by writing to me
