Thank you to all ticket buyers and sponsors for helping this year's raffle succeed during an important fundraising year. In the winning announcement video, Easterseals detailed the importance of fundraisers like the “Cool Car, Cold Cash” raffle to assist those with disabilities in our local community. Ticket sales were more important than ever this year to help continue underwriting inclusive early education and therapy services at the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center for individuals who couldn’t otherwise afford them.

The Easterseals Rehabilitation Center offers its core services of physical, occupational and speech therapy, audiology, and psychology services on a sliding fee scale. The vast majority of the organization’s therapy clients need financial assistance.
