Invest In Our Local Students and Have a Chance to Win Some Cash

Education has a cost, whether it be time or money. Graduating seniors are sometimes overwhelmed by what lies ahead. Their future and dreams are sometimes clouded by the daunting task of applying for scholarships, grants, and loans to be able to start their educational journey after high school.

The Greater Picayune Area of Chamber understands this problem and began a program last year to award $5,000 in scholarships to four different students in the Picayune and Pearl River County school districts. In order to fund that program, the Chamber is constantly trying to find ways to finance these scholarships.

This year the Chamber is winding down a 50/50 raffle that could result in someone winning up to $50,000 dollars if all 1,000 tickets are sold. Whatever the total, someone will win 50% of the total.

Tickets cost $100 each and for many that price is steep. Understood.

A few thoughts to ponder on this raffle.

1. The proceeds are going to help send local students to college. That is a dramatic and direct impact on a young person’s life as noted above.

2. The cost of a single ticket can be split as many ways as you wish with your friends, family members, co-workers, or anyone else. See if you can get 3 people to go in with you ($25.00 each) and you all split it with each other if you win.

Those wishing to buy a ticket(s) can buy them any of these ways:
