2018 Membership Dues

Dues for 2018 will remain at $25 per member. Checks can be mailed to the club or dropped off when the bar is open. Checks should be made payable to “A.O.H. Division 23”. Members whose dues were not paid by March 31, 2018 are considered delinquent.


Steeler Tickets

It’s almost time again for our annual Steeler Raffle. The Steeler Raffle has always been the primary fundraiser for our building fund, and we rely on each member to do their part in selling/buying these tickets so that we can fund building improvements. Even if you aren’t able to make it to the club as often as you might like, the Steeler Raffle provides a great opportunity for you to continue to support the club.

We have made a number of improvements over the past few years, and our Steeler raffle is the main source of revenue that funds those improvements.

In the coming weeks, members will be receiving Steeler tickets to sell to their friends, family, neighbors, co-workers or themselves, and are asked to return the ticket stubs and collected funds to the club as early as possible prior to the drawing, and no later than Sunday, August 5, 2018.

This year, the seller of the winning ticket will receive a $300 seller’s bonus, so the more tickets you sell, the better chance you have at winning yourself!

Should you need more tickets than you received last year or if for some reason you do not receive tickets by July 1, please contact our Ticket Committee Chairman, Cory Kane, at 412-225-7388, or send an email to corykane687@yahoo.com.

Thank you in advance for helping to ensure that our club will be here long into the future by doing your part to help us with this important fundraiser.

Note on Steeler Raffle

The drawing will be based on the 7 PM drawing of the Pennsylvania Lottery on Sunday, August 19, 2018. In the event that the winning ticket for the Steeler Raffle is not sold on the date of the drawing, the prize will roll to the following day’s 7 PM EST lottery, and will continue to rollover until the winning number is drawn.
