NAA/NMHC Raffle Harley-Davidson

To benefit the AIA-ICC Bob Fowler Memorial Scholarship Fund, NAA/NMHC helped fund the purchase of a Harley-Davidson Dyna Glide Low Rider motorcycle, which will be raffled Sept. 27 at the International Code Council's Annual Conference in Detroit. Entrants do not need to be present to win.

Fowler was a building official, engineer, architect and one of the founding fathers of the International Code Council (ICC). He passed away in August 2001.

Proceeds from ticket sales for the raffle will go to the scholarship fund. The bike is black with red trim color and chrome spoke wheels. It is very similar to the bike that Fowler cherished. Only 3,000 tickets, priced at $25, will be available for this drawing, and the contribution per ticket is tax deductible. Those who purchase tickets with a postmark before Aug. 15 are eligible to win a matching leather motorcycle jacket.

To purchase a raffle ticket, please contact NMHC's Ron Nickson at 202/974-2327 or at
