Christmas Raffle For To Fill A Backpack

Three more days till the fun begins...get your tickets now for the To Fill A Backpacks annual 12 Days of Christmas raffle. 

The drawings will begin on December 1st and end on December 25th with the big phone call to the lucky winner to tell them that they won $1,000. Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00. I guess this year we are going to add a little extra torture to the mix....we usually supply a list of prizes before the raffle starts so that everyone knows what the day's prize is going to be...this year we won't be supplying that list. This year we will be posting what the prize will be for the day and then draw the winning ticket later...that will help keep the suspense up until the ticket is drawn...I thought about drawing the winning ticket and not letting the winner know what they won until they picked up their prize but then nobody would get to see what the prizes were. 

Sooooooo....lets get ready for some fun....get your tickets now to be sure you are in the drawing from the start. From what I can tell the absolute lowest value of a prize will not be less than $25 starting with the first day. I'm sure that there will be a prize that someone wins that maybe they can't use, isn't something that they would ever buy, etc...but please remember...these prizes were donated by people that want to help support the Backpack program. If you don't like the prize, can't use the prize or whatever...just re-gift it or give it to someone that can use it. 
If I see any negative comments posted on the post from any of the days, whoever made the comment will not be allowed to buy tickets for future raffles. 

This is supposed to be fun and honestly is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year. We work hard all year with our fundraisers making money to be sure that we have what we need to keep doing what we set out to do...."Help send Children to school with the supplies they need". So with all that being said...get your tickets now before we draw the first ticket this coming Thursday..December 1st. And to all the people that donated prizes and all the people that bought tickets...Thank You for the continued support of the Backpack program.
