Department Announces New Raffle
The American Legion, Department of Florida is pleased to announce two raffles that are currently underway. We hope that you will show your support in participating for your chance to win $$$.
The “Veterans United Raffle” is Department’s annual Fall raffle, where you have an opportunity to win a grand prize of $10,000 or smaller prizes. Tickets are available online at www.floridalegion.org/enter. No purchase is necessary to enter, donations are always appreciated but not required. All proceeds will go towards sponsoring the Department of Florida for things like our outreach and numerous programs.
Additionally, we are excited to share with you a new opportunity, “Holiday Raffle”, an ambitious fundraising program designed to help our Posts and the Department of Florida meet fundraising objectives to better serve Veterans across the state. Posts may purchase tickets in advance to sell to their veteran families, as well as the general public. Tickets are a suggetted $5 donation for each, and the post keeps $2 for every ticket they sell. The remainder is divided with $2 to Department and $1 to the jackpot. Posts may purchase tickets in advance (for $3/ticket) to sell to their membership, as well as the general public.
The deadline for Posts to pre-purchase tickets is November 26, 2021. After the deadline, the Raffle will be made available to the general public for online purchases. Make sure your Post takes advantage of this excellent fundraising opportunity, while there is still time.
The entire month of December, a winner will be drawn each day to win the jackpot raised since the last drawing. Funds raised from Posts pre-sales, will be divided throughout the entire month to up the ante. There will be 31 DAYS OF WINNERS! Visit www.floridalegion.org/win.
We hope that you will join us in making both raffles a success. The more funds raised, the more we can do to help our veterans and our communities across the state of Florida.
