One of the most anticipated events of the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce for the past seven years, the Reverse Raffle, will be held on Aug. 27.
Only 350 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.
“The event location will be on the ticket,” said the Chamber Membership Director Pam Hamalainen. “When you purchase the ticket, you’ll find out where the drawing party will be.”
Purchasing one ticket allows two people to enter the party.
“This is the most exciting event we have,” said Linda Williams, president of the chamber.
“It is one of our most important fundraisers, but more than that, it is an event that is enjoyable for everyone,” she continued.
“It is not just your ordinary fundraiser with a raffle that you may or may not win, it is an entertaining event in which attendees can network with fellow residents and business representatives, as well as possibly walk away with a valuable prize.”
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.
