Back To Front Page

The Duneland Education Foundation (DEF) will kick-off ticket sales for its annual $10,000 scholarship raffle on Friday, January 17.

The tickets, at $25 each, will be sold beginning at 4:30 p.m. in the CHS cafeteria during the Basketball Boosters Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser and continue up to half-time of the Varsity Boys Basketball game against LaPorte.

Those who purchase a ticket before half-time of the Varsity game will have the opportunity to make a half court shot for a $100 Visa Gift Card.

The $10,000 Scholarship Raffle, sponsored by First State Bank of Porter, is one of the DEF's two major fundraisers for the year. Each ticket sold represents a 1-in-1,000 chance at a $10,000 scholarship which may be used to pay for any post-secondary education expenses, including vocational and technology training. The proceeds may be used for payment of student loans to a qualified lender for the benefit of the winner. The proceeds may also be used as an endowment to a post-secondary institution in the purchasers name.

Tickets may be purchased by contacting the Duneland Education Foundation at 219-983-3715.

Tickets will be sold from January 17 through April 25.

The drawing will be held at the annual Duneland Education Foundation Gala on April 25.
