This one was held at St. Cyril's Parish in Taylor on November 13-14, 1959 and tickets were 3 for a buck. Potential prizes were a name brand portable dishwasher, name brand Hi-Fi (I'm guessing television or stereo) and 25 consolation prize hams.
William Labadie Prescription Service, 18753 Ecorse Road, WArwick 8-1000 and Voran Funeral Home, 5900 Allen Road, WArwick 8-2300, both of Allen Park, were sponsors.
While Voran Funeral home is still servicing the downriver area, Labadie's appears to be defunct.
The tickets were unearthed from a box at an estate sale in Romulus, Michigan last Friday where I also snagged a Twin Pines milk can. They were freebie toss-ins with the farm vessel as most ephemera is at these sales.
