A winner for the North Idaho College Foundation’s Really BIG Raffle grand prize $250,000 grand prize home will be selected on July 11. The college’s largest fundraiser still has several hundred tickets available and organizers are reaching out for community support to sell the remaining tickets prior to the drawing.

The event will include live music, concessions and various door prize giveaways. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and join in the excitement of more than $285,000 in prizes being given away.

Ticket holders need not be present to win the $250,000 grand prize Coeur d’Alene home, the first prize $20,000 car, a second prize $10,000 boat, a third prize $3,500 travel package, fourth prize $2,000 shopping spree or early bird prizes.
