The Easterseals Rehabilitation Center announced the results of the annual Easterseals “Cool Car, Cold Cash” raffle sponsored by Old National Bank at approx. 12:15 p.m. Thursday, July 25, at its main headquarters, 3701 Bellemeade Avenue in Evansville, Indiana.
A total of 2,713 tickets were included in today’s drawing. Tickets were sold from May 21 until noon today (just before the drawing). Tickets were $50 each OR 3 tickets for $100. This resulted in estimated net proceeds of $78,591. (Including today’s results, the annual raffle has now raised a grand total of $1,457,904 since the year 2000.)
All funds raised will underwrite physical, occupational and speech therapy sessions for local children and adults with disabilities who couldn’t otherwise afford them. The Easterseals Rehabilitation Center offers those medical rehabilitation therapies on a sliding fee scale. No one is turned away due to inability to pay for those services, and approximately 95% of the organization’s therapy clients need financial assistance.
Prior to the drawing, attendees heard about Easterseals’ life-changing therapy services from local Easterseals Adult Ambassador Michelle Schmitt. Accountants from Kemper CPA Group verified all ticket sales and assisted with the drawing. Easterseals Board Chair, Wayne Kinney, drew the winning tickets.
