NALS Foundation


Sweepstakes Prize Event

NALS 90th Anniversary is something special, so special in fact that the NALS Foundation is stepping up our sweepstakes game! Winning sweepstakes prizes at the NALS Foundation Sweepstakes drawing while raising money for the NALS Foundation (a non-profit 501(c)(3) entity) is a highlight of the conference experience.  The excitement of buying your tickets for a chance to win gift cards, cash, and luxury items is incomparable.  Knowing that when you place your ticket in the bag, you may have the chance to win an item that you may not otherwise purchase for yourself is exhilarating. Hearing your name called for the prize that you have your heart set on is scream-inducing!  The room explodes with cheers as the winners run to fetch their prizes, hoping that they will be next. The Sweepstakes drawing is energy inducing fun!  Then how, you may ask, could the NALS Foundation make the Sweepstakes even more exciting?
