The Dawson County Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for one of its most anticipated events of the year. Tickets are still available for the Reverse Raffle that will be at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Only 300 tickets at $100 each will be sold for this year's raffle drawing party, which gives ticket holders the chance to win $10,000 cash.
Every 25th number drawn will win a prize equal or more valuable than the ticket price.
According to chamber membership director Pam Hamalainen, the event will be held at the Lakeview Center on Dawson Forest Road. Purchasing one ticket allows two people to enter the party.
"This event allows us to continue promoting our members and the chamber. Plus, it's a lot of fun watching people anxiously await to see if their number is chosen," Hamalainen said.
Tickets are available at the chamber and through the chamber's board of directors.
You can also stop by Roger Slaton's State Farm Office at the intersection of Hwy. 53 and Hightower Road to purchase a ticket from Margaret Bowen.
The chamber accepts all major credit cards, cash and checks.
Proceeds from the raffle support many chamber initiatives throughout the year.
For more information on the reverse raffle, call the chamber at (706) 265-6278.
