Fewer than 1,300 tickets remain for the chance to win a $300,000 custom house in the North Idaho College Foundation’s 14th annual Really BIG Raffle.
Buy a ticket and see the grand prize house during one of the biggest open houses of the year from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 10. 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 $300,000 custom home is currently under construction by NIC carpentry students at 1649 Umpqua Court in Post Falls. This year’s 3,300-square-foot, multi-level house has three bedrooms, three baths and an office and features numerous upgrades.
Other prizes include the first prize $20,000 car, second prize $10,000 boat, third prize $3,500 vacation and fourth prize $2,000 shopping spree. Winners do not need to be present at the drawing to win any of the major prizes.
Tickets are $100 each and only 5,000 tickets will be sold before the July 11 drawing.
Idaho residents can charge tickets by phone or order them online. Since tickets cannot be mailed out of state due to federal regulations, out-of-state residents must purchase tickets at one of the following outlets or by phone if mailed to a friend or family member with an Idaho mailing address.
