St. Ann Center initiated its very first raffle for a house. Its success made the raffle an annual event.
History of our Charity Cash Raffle
Because the cost of constructing a house was rising rapidly, we offered our first all-cash raffle.
We initiated our first “twin raffle,” running one in the first half of the year and the other in the second half.
We raised our cash prize level from $200,000 to $250,000 for each raffle.
St Ann Center is in its 25th year of offering raffles to help bridge the gap between what government reimburses us for providing services to our clients and our actual cost.
