An important deadline is coming up. The Easter Seals Annual Homerun Sweeps Fundraiser is almost over.

Organizers want to sell 2,400 tickets at $100 each before tomorrow at noon. They are just 230 tickets under that goal.

Today's sales push is named for this year's child representative, Hope McDowell.  She says buying a ticket is important for dozens of Tri-State children and adults. 

"When people buy tickets," said Hope, "it brings more money to Easter Seals.The money given to Easter Seals  goes to help people like me to get my hips better and stronger."

The drawing will be at noon tomorrow. Three people will receive either $1,000, $10,000, or $100,000 prizes.
