Dream Raffle Tickets to be sold at Alsip Nursery on September 3
Friday, August 26, 2016

The next opportunity to see the 2016 Dream Raffle Mustang is Saturday, September 3, at Alsip Home and Nursery in Frankfort. Buy your ticket from Foundation board directors between the hours of 9am and 1pm, and you’ll be entered into a special drawing to win a $50 Alsip Gift Card, compliments of Alsip Nursery!

The Early Bird Deadline for this year’s Dream Raffle is just around the corner on September 18. Those who purchase their Dream Raffle tickets on or before the 18th will be eligible to win Early Bird Prizes of $1,000, $700 and $300. There are only three remaining Sales Events before the Early Bird Deadline: September 3 at Alsip Nursery; September 10 at Walmart in New Lenox; and September 18 at the Frankfort Market. At each Sales Event, those who purchase a Dream Raffle ticket have an opportunity to spin the Raffle Wheel for additional prizes.

However, every ticket buyer is a winner since each raffle ticket comes with $110 in coupons from local businesses. “Our Dream Raffle coupons offer a great value,” commented Dream Raffle co-chair Karl Landenberger. “They are very buyer-friendly. For example there are $10-off coupons from Ambrosino’s, Chicago Dough, Aurelio’s Pizza, Dancing Marlin, Gatto’s and Pizza Mia.” Other coupon sponsors include Fuller’s Carwash, Creative Cakes, Kup-a-Joe Café, Bella Fiori Flower Shop, Teardrop Café and The Hair Spot. There is virtually something for everyone!

This year, no more than 1,000 tickets will be sold. There are also seven additional cash prizes offered--so the odds of winning are better than ever before! Sales Events, like the one scheduled for Saturday, September 3, at Alsip Nursery, offer even greater incentives. Those who are not able to attend a Sales Event, may purchase tickets at dreamraffle.org.

They attended the Dream Raffle Kick-Off and purchased their Dream Raffle ticket. When viewing the Dream Raffle Mustang, Mike and Barbara reminisced about meeting over a Mustang. Mustangs must hold some special kind of good fortune for the Stevens, as they won a $50 Target gift card in the Bonus Drawing. For your chance to win a $50 Alsip gift card, plan to purchase your Dream Raffle ticket on Saturday, September 3, at Alsip Home and Nursery in Frankfort between the hours of 9am and 1pm.
