Recent events remind us that no matter what generation of Warfighter you are, we
Veterans must be united together to protect each other and the things we care about most.
Your support for the Department of Florida Veterans United Raffle is an incredible way to demonstrate your support for every man and woman who has ever worn a uniform in defense of our flag and the principles of God and Country.
Now, more than ever, we need to re-energize our veteran community, especially those who have been hurt by events in our country and overseas. Let’s renew our commitment to the Americanism spirit, and share the importance of the principles we have fought for with all Floridans.
There is no better way to support our mission of being a beacon of hope to all veterans than to make a donation to this year’s Florida Veterans United Raffle.
Your GIFT of: $5 per ticket, $25 for 6 tickets or $30 for all 12 tickets supports programs that benefit our state’s veterans who need us, reminding them that they can count on us to always be there… and inspires and encourages young Floridians to proudly show their love and respect for our flag and country.

Previous $10,000 Grand Prize Awarded to US Army Veteran!
This past spring, William Gainous received a call from the American Legion, Department of Florida Headquarters informing him he was the grand-prize winner from the America the Beautiful drawing. This call added $10,000 into his pockets!
Gainous joined the Army in 1950 and spent most of his time in Germany as a Company Commander Driver on classified missions.
He and his wife have been proud members of Post 110 in Port Charlotte since 2017. Now that he is not as mobile, they aren’t involved in the Post as much as they would like. However, they do try to attend Post events or functions whenever they can.
Supporting Florida veterans and winning the grand prize was a double winning ticket for Bill. The couple is planning a much-needed vacation and will use the remaining $10,000 grand prize on future medical expenses down the road.
The Veterans United Raffle starts now, and Bill encourages ALL his fellow Legionnaires to join him in supporting Florida veterans and for a chance to put $10,000 in your pockets, too!
No donation is necessary to win, but you must return/submit your tickets by November 1, 2021 to be eligible.
Drawing is Saturday, November 6 at The Department Fall Conference at the Renaissance at Sea World in Orlando.
