* !! *   The 50/50 RAFFLE   * * !! * !! *WHY: The 50/50 Raffle is one of the most important fundraisers for the fireworks. Participating in the raffle is a way to support the fireworks and have a little fun at the same time. All of the funds to support the fireworks are donated and no tax payer funds are involved at all. This is our community’s show, and to keep it going, we need to support and fund it
GOAL: Raffle tickets are only $5 each and the odds of winning vary with the number of tickets sold. Our goal in 2019 is to raise $10,000 to support the fireworks. To do that we need to sell 4,000 tickets and raise a total of $20,000. It may come as a surprise, but that amount is only about half of what it takes to put on the show.
PRIZES: As the name implies, 50% of the money raised in the raffle is distributed to the winners. This year the prizes are 30%, 15% and 5% of the total amount sold. If we are successful in our fund raising, the 50/50 raffle first prize could be as much as $6000.
WHEN AND WHERE: The 50/50 Raffle drawing will be held on July 13th at Captain Joe’s Grill at 1:00 pm. You do not need to be present to win, but you'll miss the party!
PARTICIPATION: Obviously if we are trying to sell 4,000 tickets for the raffle, we need to reach out and touch all our neighbors in Whitmore Lake. One of the ways you can support the fireworks is to help sell tickets.
