Win a House, Help a Child (10/27/11)
When it comes to hot discussion topics, housing and health care are way up near the top of the list. So I figure it's fair game for me to use "Point of View" to give a little publicity to a local project that involves both.
It's Kosair Children's Hospital's "Win a House, Help a Child" Home and BMW Raffle.
This charity event isn't your typical raffle that involves astronomical odds against winning a grand prize of a few thousand dollars. No, this one features TWO big prizes – a First Prize of a 2012 Sam Swope BMW filled with $10,000 cash, and a Grand Prize of a brand new home in Norton Commons, valued at $400,000.
Yes, each ticket costs a hundred dollars. But no more than 8,000 will be sold – guaranteed. Which means your odds of winning are some of the best you'll ever encounter for prizes this large.
And what really makes this a worthwhile investment is that all proceeds from this raffle will go directly to benefit Kosair Children's Hospital, Kentucky's only full-service, free-standing pediatric care facility dedicated exclusively to caring for children.
You'll find all the details on "Win a House, Help a Child" by visiting wdrb.com and clicking on "contests," and I hope you will. Because this is one raffle where everyone wins.
