The North Idaho
College Really BIG Raffle has sold out all of the allotted 5,000 tickets,
setting a new record. Tickets sold out on June 16, which is 10 days earlier
than the previous record set in 2007.
“The house this
year was definitely a crowd favorite,” said Kristen McFadden, NIC raffle
coordinator. “The finishing touches on the home came together really nicely and
combined with the park-front setting -- the opportunity was hard to pass up.
The drawing will
be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 9 at Cheamkwet Park on NIC’s main campus. Additional
raffle prizes will include a $20,000 car, a $10,000 boat, a $3,500 travel
package and a $2,000 shopping spree.
Proceeds from the
Really BIG Raffle are used to fund scholarships, update classroom technology,
support programs and encourage outstanding instruction at North Idaho College.
