What is the Reverse Raffle All About? 

A reverse raffle is organized by selling a fixed number of raffle tickets. Every ticket number is drawn out one at a time (HCCS does this with computer software). The very last ticket remaining is the grand prize winner. At the HCCS Reverse Raffle, 250 tickets are sold and the grand prize is $2,000 cash. The first ticket drawn along with every 10th ticket are also winners of various prizes donated by the community.

Reverse Raffle ticket holders must be present to win, or have a ticket representative. Admission to the Reverse Raffle includes a gourmet dinner, entertainment and cash bar. 
The Reverse Raffle is an annual fundraiser (suspended last year) for HCCS which helps keep the rising cost of tuition minimal for all families.    

To put extra layers of health safety in place and account for the potential of some volunteers becoming ill, the event will require more volunteers than usual this year. Please consider helping out! Volunteers who work the entire evening will receive free admission for dinner (and have the opportunity to purchase a reverse raffle ticket at a reduced rate). Volunteers who work one shift may purchase dinner for $10 or dinner and a reverse raffle ticket for $45. You can sign up to volunteer using the link above.

We are also collecting donations of $25+ Gift Cards for our consolation prizes. 
Donations can be dropped off or mailed to HCCS | Attn: Reverse Raffle | 1745 S. Clinton St. | Defiance, OH 43512.

Tickets for the event will sell out fast so get yours ASAP!
