If you haven’t yet purchased tickets for Easter Seals’ HomeRun Sweeps raffle, it’s not too late.
Easter Seals will draw the winning tickets at noon Wednesday at the organization’s Rehabilitation Center gym. Participants need not be present to win.
The grand-prize winner will receive a choice of $100,000 or a new energy-efficient and handicap-accessible home valued at $163,905. The home, built by Eagle Construction, is located in the Bridlewood subdivision on Evansville’s North Side.
Five potential grand-prize tickets will be drawn Wednesday, and next week the five winners will gather at the prize house for a “key ceremony” to determine the grand-prize winner.
The four remaining finalists will receive cash prizes: $10,000, $5,000 and two $1,000 awards.
The HomeRun Sweeps drawing, originally set for July 9, was delayed because of slower-than-expected ticket sales. As of this morning, Easter Seals still had 672 of the raffle’s original 3,000 tickets for sale.
Tickets, $100 each, can be purchased between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. today and Tuesday, and from 8 a.m. to noon Wednesday. Tickets are available at the Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center, 3701 Bellemeade Ave., or by calling (812) 437-2627.
Proceeds will help fund physical, occupational and speech therapy for Tri-State individuals with disabilities.
