In a brand new fundraising effort tied to the sale of a yearly calendar which highlights the stories of children whose lives have been forever changed by illness and disease, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana, alongside Children's Memorial Hospital, is launching the first-ever Calendar Raffle for Kids in Illinois.
The concept is totally unique: People who purchase the calendar are entered into a raffle to win cash prizes literally every day of 2012, while also helping these two very deserving organizations that are both building new world-class facilities in downtown Chicago. Participants are automatically entered in a raffle in which they can win cash prizes, ranging from $250 to a grand prize of $100,000. Net proceeds from the calendar sales, priced at $25 each, will directly benefit both organizations.
This first-of-its-kind in Chicago fundraising effort offers a unique opportunity for participants to not only win for themselves, but at the same time support two incredibly deserving causes.
