With help from Lake County International and all our community partners, we’re anticipating another successful raffle!”
IAUW will sell 600 tickets for $100 each towards a fundraising goal of $60,000. Money raised is passed along to community service programs and non-profit agencies in Lake, Miner and Moody counties.
Gustaf said it’s never been easier to buy a raffle ticket and urges people to act fast.
“We’ve created a QR code that will be on display throughout our service territory. It takes you directly to our website for a quick and easy purchase,” she said. “We’ve sold out the last three years, so people should buy sooner rather than later!”
Tickets are also available at Lake County International, One Stop, F&M Co-Op Oil and other sponsor headquarters. IAUW will also sell tickets at each DownTown in MadTown event this summer.
