Tickets for the annual Get-Away Raffle, a fundraiser for veterans, are available until Wednesday, Dec. 5, the day of the drawing.
This is the third annual raffle sponsored by the women’s auxiliary of the American Legion Post 544, Twin Lakes. This year’s prizes include two passes to Country Thunder, two passes to Elkhart Lake Road America car races, two Bucks basketball tickets, golf for two at Lake Lawn Resort and more.
“The money we raise goes directly to the programs and groups that help our returning veterans,” said JoAnn Maiter, President of the Auxiliary.
“We were thrilled to raise over $2,000 last year and made financial contributions to a variety of veterans’ programs, including the Boudicca House (www.cvivet.org/services/boudicca-house/), a transitional facility for homeless female veterans and their children, as well as the Fisher House (www.fisherhouse.org), a home-away-from-home for families of service personnel receiving care at the VA Medical Center,” said Maiter.
Tickets are $5 each or six for $25. Winners need not be present. Auxiliary members will be selling tickets at the Richter’s Sentry Food Store, 600 N Lake Ave, Twin Lakes this Sunday, Dec. 2, from 9 until noon.
