Home Run raffle proceeds fund therapy for local children and adults with disabilities, while also awarding a $100,000 grand prize; 2nd-place prize of $10,000; and 3rd-place prize of $5,000. Ticket sales began January 3.

As of 2:00 Monday, March 24, only 1,864 of the 3,000 available tickets have been sold. More than 2,100 tickets were sold last year, and Easter Seals’ goal is to sell at least 2,400 this year.

Tickets may be purchased by individuals (age 18 or older) or groups. The raffle drawing, at noon Friday in the therapy gym at the Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center, is open to the public, but ticket buyers do not have to be present to win.

All sold tickets are verified and the drawing is supervised by the accounting firm Kemper CPA Group. Indiana Raffle License Number for this event is #132667.
