In a noon drawing via Facebook Live on April 24, officials at the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center announced that 1,508 tickets were included in the 2020 Easterseals “ ALL CA$H Raffle” drawing. Tickets were $100 each and a maximum of 3,000 were available.
The official ticket sales period began January 2 and ended Wed., April 22, 2020. The drawing had been postponed twice from the original date of March 12 due to low ticket sales and social distancing requirements.
Current events severely impacted this year’s ticket sales. Easterseals estimates net proceeds from this year’s Easterseals “ALL CA$H Raffle” will reach approximately $56,323, which is significantly less than last year’s net proceeds of $93,527. Funds will underwrite physical, occupational and speech therapy sessions and psychology services for local individuals with disabilities who couldn’t otherwise afford these life-changing services. This year's amount brings the 29-year total raised by this raffle to approximately $3,250,356.
Officials from Kemper CPA Group verified all tickets throughout the raffle sales period. Easterseals Board Chair Brian Hape picked the winning tickets from the raffle bin.
Indiana Raffle License Number for this event is #002228.
