Only 200 tickets remain for NIC Really BIG Raffle

Only about 200 tickets remain for the chance to win this year’s $250,000 grand prize home through the 20th annual North Idaho College Really BIG Raffle on July 10. This year’s home, built by students in the NIC Carpentry program, is located in the Coeur d’Alene Place neighborhood at 6995 Cornwall Drive. Tickets are $100 for the grand prize three-bedroom, three-bath home loaded with upgrades.

Organizers anticipate the event to sell out over the weekend and are on track to have the earliest sell out in the past five years.

Additional raffle prizes include a $20,000 car, a $10,000 boat, a $3,500 travel package and a $2,000 shopping spree. Winners can apply the cash value of these prizes to the purchase of their choice. A maximum of 5,000 tickets are sold at $100 each for the annual fundraiser.

Remaining tickets are available at Super 1 Foods, Trading Company Stores, Steins Family Foods, the NIC Workforce Training Center in Post Falls and the NIC Foundation Office, located on NIC’s main Coeur d’Alene campus. Idaho residents can also order online at or charge by phone at (208) 769-3271.

The 20th annual Really BIG Raffle is sponsored in part by Greenstone Homes and Neighborhoods. Proceeds from the Really BIG Raffle are used to fund scholarships, update classroom technology, support programs and encourage outstanding instruction at North Idaho College.
