Make the BUCKET RAFFLE the best it’s ever been
This money-making raffle is headed up by Bill Hansen and his daughters Patti and Kathy and their families. Their team will be roaming throughout Barndance selling tickets. Last year the 50/50 raffle was won by Sue Cooper. She in turn donated it back, and the foundation received the full $16,000 plus her friend Jeff’s company did a partial matching and the foundation got $20,000. WOW! Best 50-50 to date. Be on the lookout for ticket sellers. You don’t want to miss out on your chance for some cash!
