ISU Veterans Sanctuary, Armed Forces Club to hold raffle for lubester at Chrome in the Dome, ISU campus

Posted March 7, 2012

The Idaho State University Veterans Sanctuary and Armed Forces Veterans' Club will be selling raffle tickets at Chrome in the Dome for a chance to win a lubester, which is an early 20th-century oil dispenser that is hot among classic car enthusiasts and collectors.

Chrome in the Dome is March 16 from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. and March 17 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Holt Arena. The drawing to win the lubester will be at 6 p.m. on March 17 at the Holt Arena. Those who purchase raffle tickets do not have to be present at the drawing to win.

The lubester was donated by local veteran and ISU staff member, Jim Turmes, and restored by the College of Technology’s Auto Collision Repair and Refinishing Technology Program. Raffle tickets will be sold for $1 each, or six for $5. The proceeds will benefit ISU student veterans and the Veterans Sanctuary. 

The Armed Forces Veterans’ Club will sell tickets in the ISU Pond Student Union foyer on March 7 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and in the Rendezvous Complex Atrium on March 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A table will also be setup at Chrome in the Dome on March 16 from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m., and March 17 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tickets can also be purchased at the ISU Veterans Sanctuary on the third floor of the Pond Student Union Building.
