20th annual basket raffle

The Staff Advisory Council (SAC) will hold its basket raffle today (March 14) and tomorrow (March 15). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, SAC has not held a basket raffle since 2019, when $5,000 was donated to the West Side Catholic Center Charity. The grand total of contributions over the course of 19 years is $92,550. This year, SAC hopes to reach the $100,000 lifetime donation mark.

Centered on the theme “Second Chances,” this year’s raffle will benefit EDWINS Leadership & Restaurant Institute, which gives formerly incarcerated adults a foundation in the culinary and hospitality industry, and provides the support network necessary for long-term success.

Faculty and staff members can participate in the basket raffle by purchasing tickets in Tinkham Veale University Center, Ballroom A, at the following times:

  • Tuesday, March 14, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Wednesday, March 15, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Tickets will be $1 each or six for $5.
