Winter Windfall Raffle Tickets on Sale
Proceeds from the raffle will benefit Healthy Community Coalition
January 15, 2010
Tickets for the Healthy Community Coalition (HCC) Winter Windfall raffle are now available at its offices until the end of February. Farmington Selectmen approved the game of chance last week and expressed their appreciation to the nonprofit organization for seeking a new way to help with the funding of their programs, rather than going to towns for assistance.
By donating $10 per ticket to HCC, the donor will be eligible for 31 prizes to be drawn daily throughout February. Double prize drawings will be held on February 1, 14, and 21. A sampling of prizes include: a Saddleback mini-vacation for four ($950 value); a guided fly fishing trip ($450 value); restaurant certificates; ski passes; a kayak rental, fitness member ships, desserts, and much, much more!

According to Executive Director Heather Davis, HCC is looking for innovative ways to continue current programs. Due to the poor economic climate, some private foundations that previously funded programs are unable to continue to do so. In addition, State programs have been cut, and with more nonprofit organizations seeking private funding, the competition is tight.
Proceeds from the raffle will permit HCC to offer programs not covered by grants, and allow for the expansion of health screenings, health promotion and education, outreach, and mobile health unit services to meet community requests.
“Thanks to your donation, Healthy Community Coalition will be able to continue to offer a variety of services to improve the health and well-being of all the people in Greater Franklin County,” said Davis.
Tickets for Winter Windfall are available from any HCC staff or board member, by stopping by HCC offices at 105 Mt. Blue Circle in Farmington, or by printing out and mailing in the form found at www.fchn.org/news.
