Housing raffle planned Cost of tickets $5, top prize $100,000

February 13, 1994

A nonprofit group that helps low-income families buy homes is holding a raffle with a grand prize of $100,000.

The Center for Affordable Housing, started in 1992, hopes to raise close to $1 million to greatly expand its counseling programs that, according to the group, have helped put 500 families into homes.

The center hopes to eventually help 1,500 families annually.

For an entry fee of $5, the new "Haffle Raffle" will pay a first prize of $100,000; a second prize of $75,000; and a third prize of $50,000.

Winners must use the prize money for the purchase of a home or payment on a mortgage.

The drawing for the raffle will be held Dec. 31.

Coupons for the raffle will be available only in The Sun.

They will be offered in the newspaper beginning on Feb. 20 and will run every Sunday until the new raffle receives its maximum 250,000 entries.
