Truro Le­gion sell­ing raf­fle tick­ets to help lo­cal char­i­ties

Truro Daily News - - Colchester County -

Tick­ets for sale at the Truro le­gion give peo­ple the chance to win a bas­ket filled with gift cer­tifi­cates, along with an op­por­tu­nity to help three lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions.

The bas­ket con­tains more than $500 in gift cards and cer­tifi­cates from a va­ri­ety of lo­cal busi­nesses. The fundraiser was or­ga­nized to pro­vide a turkey din­ner to guests from the Truro Home­less Out­reach So­ci­ety, Colch­ester Food Bank, and Big Broth­ers Big Sis­ters.

“This is a new project, and it’s heart­warm­ing to see how the com­mu­nity stepped up to sup­port it,” said San­dra Dill, who is with the pub­lic re­la­tions com­mit­tee at the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion, Branch 26.

“We know there are peo­ple who could ben­e­fit from this, and the le­gion is reach­ing out like it did his­tor­i­cally, show­ing kind­ness and sup­port.”

The le­gion con­trib­uted space for the din­ner, the At­lantic Su­per­store is pro­vid­ing food, and vol­un­teers will be cook­ing and serv­ing, so any ex­tra funds raised will help with pro­grams run by the non-profit groups. Tick­ets are $1 each and can be pur­chased in the le­gion bar.

Draw date is Oct. 8.
