Preston Lions Club looking for ugly sweaters

The Clinton Herald

---- — PRESTON — Don we now our ugly apparel for a cause — this is the next fundraiser the Preston Lions Club has come up with to help provide toys for children at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics and Mercy Hospital in Clinton during their yearly Santa tours in Iowa City on Dec. 17 and Clinton on Dec. 22.

An ugly sweater dance featuring the band 3 On The Tree will be held at The Garage (562 E. White St.) in Preston on Saturday, Dec. 7, from 8 p.m. to midnight. Admission is free, but the club is requesting a donation of a new and unwrapped toy or monetary donation to be used toward purchasing toys to be delivered to the hospitals. Prizes will be given for the ugliest sweaters and the group will have a bucket raffle and sell chances for a 50/50 drawing to be held in March.
