RBGA young adult committee planning gift card raffle

The RiverBend Growth Association’s Young Adults Committee is planning a gift card raffle in which participants will have chances to win thousands of dollars in gift cards in a program that will support both area youth and non-profit organizations in the Riverbend area.

The committee consists of three representatives from the RiverBend Growth Association’s member schools and mentors from the Growth Association’s membership. The high school representatives are two juniors and a senior from Alton High School, Civic Memorial High School, East Alton – Wood River High School, Marquette Catholic High School, and Roxana High School.

Each year the students collaboratively create, coordinate, and present a fundraiser that will benefit a River Bend area non-profit organization and one student from the committee. The students this year collected more than $2,500 in local gift cards and will present a gift card raffle with three winners. First place is $1,300, second place is $750, and third place is $500.

The gift cards collected to be raffled off have been divided into three places. First-place prizes include gift cards to Bakers & Hale, Edison’s Entertainment, JJ Thermo’s, Tucker’s Automotive, White Birch, and others. Second-place prizes include Riverbend Axe Throwing, Roberts Motors, Gentelin’s on Broadway, Olga’s Kitchen, Shivers Frozen Custard, and more. Third-place prizes include Brush Hair + Makeup, Roma’s Pizza, Sammi’s Sandwiches, Happy Hour Barber Stop, Round Table, and more.

Tickets are $10 each. To purchase tickets or for questions, visit, call (618) 467-2280, or purchase in person at the Benjamin Godfrey Mansion 6722 Godfrey Road, Godfrey. For any other questions about the raffle email Alex St. Peters at
