Raffle Update Due to Coronavirus

We have decided to suspend all raffle drawings until school resumes. We will re-schedule all drawings after our mandatory closure is over.
This was a very difficult decision for our office, but we felt we should respect the social distancing recommendations and not put our raffle buyers or sellers at risk. Many of our outlets will also be closing for the next two weeks in addition to our campuses.
Tickets can still be purchased with a credit card by phone by calling our office at 217-442-1184. Please leave us a message if we are not in the office, and we will return your call at our earliest convenience.
We are also working to reschedule the final drawing party to a later date. We will keep you updated as the situation progresses.
Thank you for your understanding,
Janet Picillo
Advancement Director
