Faith in Action kicks off annual fundraiser raffle

Raffle tickets are now available at local businesses for the Faith in Action for Cass County 2012 fundraiser raffle. 

The grand prize will be a Solar Red 2012 Polaris Ranger 400 with a trailer. The machine and trailer will be on display at many area businesses throughout the raffle period.  The second place prize is $1,000 cash and the third place prize is a $500 gift card from Hackensack Lumber and Do It Best Hardware. Tickets are available individually at a new lower price or in packets of eight for a great deal. The raffle drawing will be held Nov. 7.

This is the sixth annual Faith in Action fundraiser raffle and this year there are 12 prizes available, all of which were donated by area businesses, including Black Bear Golf in Pine River, Tianna Country Club in Walker, Godfrey’s in Backus, Southside Station, Drinking Water Test, Mark’s Market, Lucette’s Pizza and Pub, and Swanson’s Bait of Hackensack, One Stop in Longville, Clem’s Hardware in Cass Lake and the Pine River Family Market.  The 2011 raffle netted around $13,000 to Faith in Action for Cass County, which was used directly to support volunteer services to people in need. 

Faith in Action is a community-based, volunteer, non-profit organization providing non-medical assistance to older adults, adults with disabilities and other individuals experiencing difficult circumstances. Services include transportation, friendly visiting, respite, light housekeeping and chores and ramp building. No fee is charged for services, but donations are accepted.  While income does not determine eligibility, Faith in Action’s goal is to assist those who lack other resources.
