Nobles and Ladies:

Don’t forget about fundraising! We have a number of opportunities to raise funds for the Temple and for the Hospital Fund. Help support Oriental Shriners, and get our name visible, by helping in fundraising efforts.

Description: AmbitlogoSmall.jpgHere is an opportunity to raise funds for Oriental Shriners by paying your utility bill every month.  Switch your gas and electric provider to Ambit Energy.  Oriental Shriners will receive $2 each month for each account that is signed up on our Ambit web page.  You will need your National Grid or NYSEG bill for your account numbers.  Gas and electric rates are competitive and you will receive travel reward points each month you pay your bill.  Sign up friends and family, receive additional points, and Oriental receives additional funds.  If you have a second home or a small business, sign up that up, too.  If you have questions, contact Gaylord Hawley.
