#HalfForTheHouse Raffle

Thank you to everyone who participated in the #HalfForTheHouse 2017- 50/50 Raffle. Your support helps over 1600 survivors of domestic/sexual violence in our community.

Congratulations to the winner of this year’s raffle who purchased a digital ticket this year. She won $1,180 for herself and $1,180 was raised for James House. We had 50% of our participants purchase digital tickets and 50% purchase tickets in person.

The winner was drawn at the Hogs for the House Benefit Cook Off Competition on September 23. Each online ticket was  assigned a raffle number in numerical, chronological order. At the event, volunteers put a numbered ball matching each raffle ticket number sold into the bingo ball hopper and a volunteer drew the winner at 3:40pm during the event awards ceremony.

Your $20 raffle ticket purchases will provide food, shelter and services for these women, men and children of our service area. Join us next year, enter the contest, and make a difference by entering to win #HalfForTheHouse!
