Each Spring, for the past few years, Marshfield Area United Way has held an annual house raffle. The raffle gave the opportunity for one lucky person to win a new home. Though not enough tickets have been sold in past raffles to give away the house, Marshfield Area United Way has given out more than $115,000 in cash prizes including two cash prizes over $40,000 to two individuals.

This year, Marshfield Area United Way has added a new and exciting dimension to the Dare 2 Dream raffle. The raffle this year will give ticket holders a chance to win a 2013 Ford Mustang or a brand new home. The grand prize for the raffle is contingent on the number of raffle tickets sold.

The raffle structure is as follows…If one to 1199 tickets are sold, the grand prize winner will receive half of the prize money. Should 1200 to 3099 tickets be sold, the winner will be able to choose between a 2013 Ford Mustang or half of the prize money. If 3100-5000 tickets are sold, the winner will be able to choose from a model home from Wisconsin Homes or half of the prize money. The prize money is all proceeds from ticket sales less all taxes and expenses incurred by United Way in connection with the raffle. There will also be second place winner whom will receive a cash prize of $3000 and a third place winner that will receive $1000. The cost for tickets is one ticket for sixty dollars or two for one hundred dollars.

Tickets will go on sale beginning at the Dairyfest Mayor’s Breakfast Friday, June 1, 2012.
