Second Annual Team Poppy Fest
Win an Orbea Ordu GLT Bike (retail $4500)!

Team Poppy Tony races triathlons to raise funds in the fight against multiple myeloma, an incurable blood cancer.

To kick off the 2014 season, we are raffling off an Orbea Ordu GLT Bike (retail $ 4500) donated by Tri360 along with other BIG prizes. (See the growing list below!)

Join us on April 10th from 6-9pm at Arlington Rooftop Bar & Grill, 2424 Wilson Blvd. (Courthouse Metro)

Raffle tickets: $5 each or 5 for $20. All donations are tax deductible and benefit the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (the MMRF).


How it works: All tickets purchased via donations to this site will be converted into raffle tickets ($5/each or 5 for $20) and will be waiting for you at the door. Each prize has its own raffle bucket so you decide which prizes you want to win by placing your tickets in the corresponding raffle buckets. At 9pm, raffle tickets from those unable to attend will be placed in the bike raffle. We will draw the winning ticket around 9pm. Again, you do NOT need to be present to win the bike.
