NIC Really BIG Raffle sells out, breaks record

The North Idaho College Really BIG Raffle has sold out all of the allotted 5,000 tickets, setting a new record. Tickets sold out on June 16, which is 10 days earlier than the previous record set in 2007.

“The house this year was definitely a crowd favorite,” said Kristen McFadden, NIC raffle coordinator. “The finishing touches on the home came together really nicely and combined with the park-front setting -- the opportunity was hard to pass up.

The drawing will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 9 at Cheamkwet Park on NIC’s main campus. Additional raffle prizes will include a $20,000 car, a $10,000 boat, a $3,500 travel package and a $2,000 shopping spree.

Proceeds from the Really BIG Raffle are used to fund scholarships, update classroom technology, support programs and encourage outstanding instruction at North Idaho College.
