    To those who were at The Gary J. Lynn Chili Cook Off please let me know if you bought raffle tickets and how many. If you know someone who bought tickets please find out how many they bought and let me know.
    Thank you

    They walked off with the raffle money and that is illegal. Only 501 c3 can do raffles. We have asked for an account of the raffles and they don't respond If we don't get an answer by tomorrow we are calling the attorney for the foundation and the tv stations. I will let everyone know. They also used their own charge so if anyone put anything on their charge let me know.(We didn't know they had a charge)so no accounting. The GM of Bubba's is fuming mad because they told her we were getting all proceeds and that is what they put in their Rblok magazine. Bubba's won't do anything with them anymore.

    A Message to RBLOK, You had better return the money you took from the Gary J Lynn Foundation and do it quickly. We here in Houston Texas do not take it lightly when we have to back up a 17 year old CP victim after he was taken advantage of. And for your information it was not the RBLOK cookoff it was the 2nd annual Gary J Lynn Chili Cookoff

    just posted this on face book

    I think before y'all start with the "i'm from New York" and "some Texas butt whooping" threats, that someone with a clear head read up on some fine print if there is any and/or contact the Attorney General's office and investigate this group.

    We just use expressions on this board. They are not to be taken literally. If you have been on this board long enough you should know that. People on TT stick together, most of the time.

    There's a peckerhead in every crowd isn't there?

    Not the "Rippin' off a kid in a wheelchair is pretty sorry" but read the contract....lol

    I thought only one entity in this state that could hold a for profit lottery was the Texas Lottery Commission. Since you believe thats not so, please enlighten us all Mr Lawyerman.

    Wow, I can see both of sides of the point, of course yeah if they took funds (allegedly) then definitely get the law on them since yeah that's shady to do that and take advantage of a good cause, but I looked at their FB site too and they have "a portion of the proceeds" would be given, so someone is not holding up their end of the deal. Nevertheless I see, JT's point too (for once) and yeah call or contact someone who can investigate this because if they did this to this foundation, who else could they be doing this too as well. (allegedly)

    In their 77007 magazine the add says All proceeds benefit The GJL Foundation. If anyone took the magazine it is on page 60. The website says proceeds the magazine says All. This is in case someone says proceeds does not mean everything. All does.
