Raffle Scheduled for Sept. 23
The Wendell Historical Society’s annual $10,000 reverse raffle is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 23. As last year, the raffle will be virtual from the studio of East Wake TV.
The raffle is the primary fundraiser for the Wendell Museum, which is expected to open by the end of the year.
Tickets are $100 for a one-in-265 chance of winning $10,000. In addition, every 25th ticket drawn will receive $100. Each ticket comes with two barbecue dinners, catered by White Swan of Smithfield, pickup only from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Wendell Museum, 122 W. Second St., Wendell.
Upon purchase, ticket holders must specify if they wish to split, meaning they are willing to equally share the $10,000 prize if they are among the final 10, or hold out for the chance to win it all. If one person holds out with no split, the drawing continues.
The raffle is scheduled for 7 p.m. and can be viewed three ways: Spectrum Cable 22; YouTube-East Wake TV; and Facebook-Wendell Historical Society.
