Early bird deadline for Really BIG Raffle is May 31

Don't miss the May 31 deadline to qualify to win two additional early bird prizes in the North Idaho College Foundation's 12th annual Really BIG Raffle. Those who purchase a $100 raffle ticket on or before the deadline will be automatically entered into a drawing for a 32-inch color TV and a DVD/VHS player.

Nearly 2,000 tickets have already been sold for the chance to win a $200,000 custom home built by students in the NIC Carpentry program.

The house is currently under construction at 1374 Coquille Court in Post Falls. Located in the Montrose subdivision, this year's house is a rancher with a full basement and more than 3,500 square feet of living space. The house features a covered front porch, rear deck and three-car garage on a landscaped corner lot.

Other prizes include the first prize $20,000 car or boat, the second prize $3,500 travel package or the third prize $2,000 shopping spree.
Tickets are $100 each and only 4,500 tickets will be sold before the July 6 drawing. Winners do not need to be present to win.

Proceeds from the Really BIG Raffle benefit important educational needs at NIC.

Since tickets cannot be mailed out of state due to federal regulations, out-of-state residents must purchase tickets at one of the ticket outlets or by phone if mailed to a friend or family member with an Idaho mailing address.

Idaho residents can charge tickets by phone by calling (208) 769-3271; mail a check to the NIC Foundation at 1000 W. Garden Ave., Coeur d'Alene, ID, 83814; order them online at www.nic.edu/foundation/rbr or purchase tickets at any of the following outlets:
