Just $25 and a little luck is all anyone needs for the chance to score big in LifeStream Blood Bank’s Second Annual Dream Raffle, presented by Blanke Schein Wealth Management.
This year’s grand prize winner may choose between a popular 2021 Ford Bronco Sport or $20,000 cash. Five other major prizes valued at $750 – $2,000 each also will be awarded during the December 8th drawing. A maximum of 5,000 tickets are available for sale.
Tickets are $25 each and on sale through November 30 or until they sell out. For every four tickets purchased in a single $100 transaction, the buyer receives a bonus entry. Bonus entries give buyers extra chances to win all Dream Raffle prizes and will also be placed into a separate drawing for a five-carat diamond bracelet ($7,000 value) donated by El Paseo Jewelers.
Dream Raffle proceeds will help purchase two new bloodmobiles that are replacing bloodmobiles taken out of service because they no longer meet State and Federal emissions standards.
“It is essential we complete this purchase to ensure our team can remain ‘on the road’ in full force to collect blood products to assist surgical and cancer patients; accident, burn and trauma victims; even newborn babies,” said Rick Axelrod, MD, LifeStream’s president/CEO and medical director.
Tickets may be purchased by calling 909-386-6929 from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, by mail or FAX. Details about all prizes, payment options, and raffle rules may be found at www.LStream.org/raffle.
