We are excited to present our first Freedom Raffle, just in time for your 4th of July celebration with its parades and fireworks.

You could win up to $10,000 when you turn in your raffle tickets, available in the Headquarters office (Sabel).  On Saturday, July 1, 2017 during General Session, Ten (10) Winners will be randomly selected for the Freedom Raffle prizes:

Second Prize: $2,500
Third Prize: $1,000
4th & 5th Prizes $500

Your tickets give you a fair chance to win any one of these great prizes. And when you give a donation of $5 per ticket, $20 for 6, or $30 for 12 tickets – you’ll carry on our continued support to our veterans, active duty military, and their families.

As members of the The American Legion, Department of Florida we ought to be proud of our long history of service to all veterans and our communities.

And, as you know, The American Legion has fought for and brought great change for the well-being of our veterans; whether it be for the GI Bill, or the creation of the Veterans Administration. It is up to us, all of us, to continue what our forefathers started 98 years ago, by advocating for all our veterans to ensure that they receive the benefits they earned with their service!

Please get your raffle tickets at our Department Convention, and no later than Saturday, July 1st by 10:00am, in the Department Headquarters (Room Sabal) to be eligible to win.

Your contributions to this raffle supports the Department of Florida’s mission; today and tomorrow. And who knows, you could be the lucky winner of the $10,000 grand prize!

Thank you for your continued support of Legion programs and supporting our Florida veterans and their families.

*A donation is not required to enter, nor does it increase your odds of winning

Remember 100% of the net proceeds of your donation stays in Florida and helps support Florida veterans and Florida children and youth needs.
