The Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) Foundation has sold about 150 raffle tickets to raise funds for scholarships. Only 300 tickets are available and must be sold before the drawing on Tuesday, March 31, according to Ronnie Weyl, Executive Director of the RVCC Foundation.
The person holding the winning ticket may choose between four different trips: Paris, France for seven days and two people; Kauai, Hawaii for seven days and two people; San Francisco, California and Sonoma, California for three days each and two people; and Orlando, Florida for five days and a family of four.
Tickets cost $100. Each travel package is unique and includes airfare. The winner does not have to be present at the drawing.
The second prize is a weekend overnight stay at the Michelangelo Hotel, NYC, third prize is a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 and fourth prize is a Professional Series Inkjet Color Printer.
Weyl said she understands that students won’t be able to afford the tickets, but encourages them to spread awareness about the raffle in their community.
This is the fourth year the RVCC Foundation has held a raffle with a limited amount of tickets and a trip. The RVCC Foundation supports numerous organizations throughout the campus and awards more than 250 scholarships totaling more than $250,000 each year.
