UTICA, N.Y. – The Arc Oneida-Lewis is holding a raffle fundraiser, with a grand prize of $10,000 in cash. Second place will win $1,500 and third place will get $500.
With many traditional fundraisers canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, proceeds from the raffle will go toward underfunded programs at The Arc.
“Our Foundation was forced to postpone or cancel traditional fundraising events due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Adrienne Carbone, president of the Friends of The Arc Foundation. “We’re hoping to raise crucial funds while providing a fun way for people to help our cause and possibly win great prizes.”
Each ticket costs $20, and a limit of 2,000 will be sold.
Tickets are on sale at area businesses, including: Chanatry’s Hometown Market, Joe Tahan’s Furniture, Pumpernickel’s Deli, Marr-Logg House, Knucklehead’s Brewhouse, Holy Pizzolie, and the Get It & Go Deli.
Tickets can also be purchased by calling 315-982-2755 or online at: thearcolc.org.
