During the month of July, the Manassas Moose Lodge, both the men and women, conducted a Virtual 5K contest to raise money for Moose Charities.  The Manassas Chapter challenged the Lodge to a friendly competition and the men graciously accepted.  The lodge and chapter raised funds by selling red and green Christmas lightbulbs made of paper for 1 dollar each.  They used the term race to indicate they were racing to see which team would collect the most money first.  These competitions were held on each Friday of July.  By the last Friday of the month, they had almost run out of room to hang the lightbulbs.  Each paper lightbulb had the signature and words of inspiration for the team or the kids at Mooseheart.  They even had a wager to make the competition fun.  The looser had to wear a Tutu and crown on the last Friday of the month; the day the competition ended.

The Chapter team "Manassas Moosette's" was captained by Past State President "Tony Wallace".  The Lodge team "Amber's Moose Cuties" was led by Manassas Moose's "Amber Young" the Social Quarters bartender.

Every Friday during the month of July, there was racing to get the most lightbulbs sold, and the team captains got a little down and dirty in their methods of collecting money…and it was all for a good cause.

It was a tough race but the men were able to pull it out in the last hours over the women. Raising a total of $1451.00 by selling Christmas lightbulbs made of paper. Everyone got in the spirit of things and had so much fun at the expense of Tony, who was a good sport about the whole night!
