2015 Annual Raffle Going On Now
September 20, 2015 3:19 PM | Tagged as raffle

St. Joseph's Home Annual Raffle is going on now.  Don't miss out on the fun and the opportunity to support a great cause!

Proceeds from this year's raffle will help fund a much needed project - the demolition of the "round building" in preparation for the construction of a new activity center that will honor the memory of Sr. Judith Morris.

The new addition will be more than an activity center.  It will be a gathering space for residents, friends and families, and community engagement.  We need your help to ensure the success of this enormous undertaking.

The raffle drawing will be held Friday, November 6, at 9 a.m. in the SJH Holy Family Center family room.  Please join us for donuts and coffee!

1,000 tickets must be purchased for prizes to be awarded.  In the event 1,000 tickets are not purchased, the raffle will revert to a 50/50 cash prize of net proceeds.

It's easy to support this cause.  Click here for a ticket application.  Mail your completed application by November 5 to:

St. Joseph's Home
Attn: Raffle Committee
3306 South Sixth Street Road
Springfield, IL 62703

For additional information or questions, please feel free to contact Terri Hempstead, director of development, at 217-529-5596 or funddev@saintjosephshome.org.

As always, thank you for your support and generosity!
