This summer kicked off the 28th Annual Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois House Raffle, offering participants a chance to win 46 cash prizes with the grand prize of a Fulford Homes “Whitney Farmhouse” style home valued at $305,644, or $250,000 in cash.
The $100 raffle certificate purchase not only provides the chance to win a new home or any of the other 46 cash prizes, but it also gives participants the opportunity to directly support one-to-one mentoring of youth in the community.
President & CEO, Heather Freed stated, “We are on a mission to ensure that every child in our community graduates from high school with a plan for their future and a mentor whose impact lasts a lifetime. Now more than ever our kids need the support of positive adults to defend their potential.”
This year’s grand prize is a beautiful 1,518 square-foot farmhouse with a superbly appointed exterior finish. The three bedroom, two full bath home features a two-car garage, basement, master suite with a walk-in closet and luxury bath featuring an oversized shower, designer kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and nine-foot first-floor ceilings, to name a few.
A $1,000 early bird drawing will be held on Aug. 18, 2022, and the drawing for the grand prize will be held live at 12 noon on Nov. 10, 2022, on the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois’ Facebook page. Early Bird winners are still eligible for grand prizes. Participants do not need to present to win and all winners will be published on the agency website, www.bbbsil.org within 24 hours of the drawing. The raffle drawing will be overseen by an independent organization.
