Northeast Kingdom Chamber of Commerce sponsors The 19th Hole Highlight Super Raffle - the chamber's largest fund-raiser! The Chamber will be offering a grand prize of $1,500, with a total cash prize of $3,000. Our committee members are hard at work collecting the 100+ great prizes that our ticket holders will win. Once again we will also be offering special events before the raffle - a just-for-fun putting contest and a silent auction. Putters will have a chance to test their skills for a drawing to win an extra raffle ticket! The silent auction offers more of our usual great prizes...you just name the price!
Only 100 tickets will be sold to this event. A $100 ticket provides you a wonderful buffet dinner for two at the Country Club, an evening of fun with friends and great prizes for everyone. Additional dinner tickets are available at $20 per person.
Funds raised from this event help support worthwhile chamber programs that directly help our membership and region. The price of the ticket has never risen, and we hope that a fun evening, as well as helping the chamber, will encourage you to buy a ticket. Every ticket holder wins a prize!
