Seventy per cent of tickets for the 30th Annual Rotary Dream Home Lottery have sold since ticket sales opened back at the end of December.
Raffle Manager Melissa Coulombe says compared to the same time last year, this year’s sales are 15 per cent ahead. She says seeing the community support is heartwarming, especially following the past few years.
“It was a hard couple of years through COVID, and we still managed to keep the fundraiser and lottery alive, and the community has pulled together year after year to support us,” Coulombe says.
Along with the Dream Home lottery, this year there is also a Cash Jackpot 50-50 and Cash Cow Calendar. Coulombe says whoever wins the 50-50 lottery will receive half the pot, with the other half staying in the community. So far the 50-50 lottery is worth $360,000 and continues to grow.
