Brick’s Chamber of Commerce has begun selling tickets for its annual Dream Dollars Raffle, which raises funds for the organization’s scholarship.
The raffle is limited to 200 tickets, which are $100 each, and the grand prize is $10,000 based on the sale of all the tickets. Lincoln O’Hare, President of the Brick Township Chamber of Commerce Educational Foundation, said that “shares” of a ticket may be purchased as well as the full raffle ticket.
“We’ve had several winners in past years who were groups of friends or co-workers,” O’Hare said.
The drawing for the winner will be held on Thursday, Oct. 22 at a special networking event at the River Rock Restaurant on Route 70 in Brick. The raffle has been a sellout in past years and the organizers urge those interested to call the Chamber of Commerce at 732-477-4949 to purchase a ticket.
The Educational Foundation has been awarding scholarships for continuing education for 25 years and, this year, awarded $25,000 in scholarships, made possible by fundraisers such as this one.
