NIC Really BIG Raffle tickets on sale now at ticket outlets

Regional outlets are now selling tickets for North Idaho College’s Really BIG Raffle drawing for a chance to win a brand new $250,000 Coeur d’Alene home; $20,000 car; $10,000 boat; $3,500 vacation package and $2,000 shopping spree.  This year marks the 19th year of NIC’s largest annual fundraiser, which is a collaboration between volunteers, sponsors, community supporters and the NIC Carpentry program.

Only 5,000 raffle tickets will be sold prior to the July 11 drawing at $100 each. Early ticket purchasers can qualify for additional prizes including a $500 Best Buy gift card, North Idaho Bed and Breakfast Association weekend getaway and $100 Cabela’s gift card.

This year’s home is a single-level three bedroom, two bath with nearly 1,900 square feet of living area. The plan includes a vaulted living room with fireplace, an open kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counters, master suite with jetted tub and a full unfinished basement. The home is under construction at 2748 Sorbonne Drive, Coeur d’Alene, in one of the area’s largest planned communities, Coeur d’Alene Place. This Greenstone Homes neighborhood offers walking paths, green space and parks and is only minutes from area shopping, schools and Lake Coeur d’Alene.

Tickets can be purchased at North Idaho outlets including Super 1 Foods, Trading Company Stores in Post Falls, Stein’s Family Foods, Stock Building Supply, Lake City Ford, the NIC Workforce Training Center and the NIC Foundation Office. Idaho residents can also order by phone or online. 

The raffle is sponsored in part this year by title sponsor Greenstone Homes and major sponsors Stock Building Supply, Washington Trust Bank and Edge Home Roofing. All proceeds support student and program needs at North Idaho College.
