ALTON — Marquette Catholic High School has announced tickets are on sale for the 2015 $50,000 Mega Raffle.
Tickets can be purchased at www.marquettecatholic.org/megaraffle or in person at the school at 219 E. Fourth St. They also can be purchased at the Mega Raffle Kickoff Party at 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 22, at Johnson’s Corner, 2000 State St. The party will be preceded by the Blue Gray Games at 5:30 p.m. at Public School Stadium.
“We will have a block party with food and beverages available for purchase and live music by The Wherehouse Project,” said Mary Hough of the Marquette Development Office. “For anyone who has bought a ticket by 10 p.m. that night we will draw for four green seats at the Saturday, Sept. 5, St. Louis Cardinals game.”
“This year we also have a new feature. We will draw a $1,000 weekly winner each week until we draw for the $50,000 winner on Sept. 26. The earlier you buy, the more chances you have to win. Tickets must be purchased by 2 p.m. on Fridays to be in the weekly $1,000 drawing. We’ll draw the winner at 3 p.m. each Friday.”
Mega Raffle tickets are $50 each or three for $100. In addition, each buyer receives a coupon to use at either Johnson’s Corner, Chez Marilyn’s Restaurant, Bluff City Grill, Roper’s Regal Beagle or at either Rock Springs Golf Course or Rolling Hills Golf Course.
The $50,000 Mega Raffle winner will be drawn Sept. 26 at the Homecoming Alumni Party at the Alton Knights of Columbus.
“This is one of our biggest fund-raisers of the year and offers buyers a chance to win $50,000,” Hough said. “Last year’s Mega Raffle winner bought one ticket. We are already off to a great start with our Internet sales and hope to keep the momentum going.”
