Pay It Forward: Ravens Roost #4 Adopts a Family

This year the Ravens Roost adopt a family of 6 children through the Salvation Army for our Pay It Forward effort. Team captains volunteered to take on the responsibility of gathering presents (clothes and toys) for each of the family members.

There were so many donations this year that the extra items will be donated to other causes to help other families have a wonderful holiday season!!!

Congratulations to winner (and Roost #4 member) Shelly Kline!  In addition to winning the season tickets, Shelly also won free membership for 2014 since she also sold the winning ticket!

Congratulations to Roost #4 member, John McDonald, for selling the most raffle tickets – 95! Woo hoo!!!  John also wins free membership for 2014.

Roost #4 Reminders – Bull Roast Saturday, Meeting Monday!

Just a few quick reminders …

Roost #4 holds their Annual Bull & Oyster Roast at 7pm this Saturday night (3/23) at The Lodge in Catonsville.  The event is basically SOLD OUT.  Our two Roost #4 Formula 4 Success Scholarship awards will be presented to the recipients at the event!  Members attending are still encouraged to donate a bottle of booze to be used as a prize on the wheel (if you haven’t already done so). 

Roost #4 has their monthly meeting at 7pm this coming Monday night (3/25) at Jilly’s.

As for the raffle tickets for the two 2013 Ravens Season tickets, if you haven’t yet picked-up your raffle tickets (all Roost #4 members are committed to sell at least 5 tickets each), please do so prior to Monday’s meeting at Jilly’s (tickets will be available from 6-7 pm) or at our Bull & Oyster Roast this Saturday (from 7-9pm).  If you’re unable to attend the bull roast or meeting, please ask a friend to pick-up your tickets so we don’t have to mail them out.  The raffle of the Ravens season tickets funds our Roost #4 Formula 4 Success Scholarship Fund.


Ravens Roost 4 Pack

Bob and Wendy Caldwell will be doing the 18th annual March for the Animals, the Maryland SPCA’s largest annual fundraiser.  They are looking for Roost members to join in the fun and do the walk with them.  Those interested to contact Bob at mr.bobcaldwell1[at]  Walkers can bring their dogs, and although cat owners walk the event, it is usually without their pets.

If there is enough interest from the Roost, Bob would like to form a Ravens Roost pack, and have ‘Ravens Roost 4’ appear on our event t-shirts.
