Celebrate America – Buy a $10,000 Raffle!

Celebrate the American spirit by taking a chance and helping others!

Tickets are now available for SIMHS’s $10,000 Limited Raffle, which benefits the Society‘s programs and services for Staten Island children and families with special needs.

Only 250 tickets will be sold, at $100 apiece, according to SIMHS Director of Volunteer Services Maryann Striffolino.

The drawing for the grand prize of $10,000, plus second and third prizes of $1,000 and $500 respectively, will be on Friday, December 8 at SIMHS headquarters in West Brighton, which will be decorated in a patriotic theme. Ticket-holders are invited to attend the drawing, but do not have to be present to be winners, Ms. Striffolino said. Guests will be treated to a light supper with home-made “Guild desserts,” door prizes, and other surprises.

The annual holiday season raffle, sponsored by our Women’s Guild, raises funds for Staten Island children and families who participate in our numerous mental health and related programs and services. Last year the SIMHS served more than 5,000 children and their families.

To reserve your tickets, call Ms. Striffolino at 718-442-2225, Ext. 304.
