Ticket to be given away at Really BIG Raffle open house

More than 2,000 tickets have already been sold for the North Idaho College Foundation’s 13th annual Really BIG Raffle.
Don’t miss this chance to buy a ticket and see the grand prize $250,000 custom house during one of the biggest open houses of the year from noon to 4 p.m. on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 14. Tickets will be sold at the event and ticket holders can enter to win a free $100 raffle ticket at the open house. The drawing for the free ticket will be held at 4 p.m. The winner does not need to be present to claim the prize, but entrants must have already purchased at least one Really BIG Raffle ticket to be eligible to enter.
The grand prize $250,000 custom home is currently under construction by NIC carpentry students at 2446 W. Dumont Drive in Coeur d’Alene. Located in the Coeur d’Alene Place subdivision, this year’s house is a rancher with a full basement and more than 3,700 square feet of living space. The house includes many upgrades and features a three-car garage, composite deck, gas fireplace and a landscaped corner lot.
Other prizes include the first prize $20,000 car, a new second prize $10,000 boat, a third prize $3,500 travel package and fourth prize $2,000 shopping spree.
The chance to qualify for two additional early bird prizes ends May 31. Those who purchase tickets before the deadline will be automatically entered into a drawing for a digital camera and home theater system.
Tickets are $100 each and only 5,000 tickets will be sold before the July 12 drawing.
Tickets are available at the open house or at ticket outlets throughout the area. Idaho residents can charge tickets by phone or order them online. Proceeds from the Really BIG Raffle benefit important educational needs at NIC.
