Raffle tickets are $3.00/each or 10 for $20.00 (as of 2022). Prices are subject to change with notice at the Board’s discretion.

Jerry’s Bar in Oshkosh (1210 Ceape Avenue) is your best best, however we have so many awesome volunteer fundraisers that they often are available at other local establishments as well!

They range, but are typically at least $20-$25 in value, with the grand prize being $3,000 cash!

NOPE! But it is key that you write your information (full name, address and phone #) legibly so we can send you your winnings!

Since a lot of the prizes are gift certificates, provided you’ve legibly filled out the raffle ticket, we will mail them to you within a week of the event. Should you win a larger prize like a gift basket, or a high-value prize like the vacation package or cash, then you’ll need to redeem at Jerry’s Bar by March 31st of that same year. Please call first to ensure we have a volunteer that can help you.
