The Hazleton Standard-Speaker - - COMMUNITY -

The ninth an­nual $5,000 lot­tery tick­ets give-away is un­der­way at the Cigar Box Store at the Lau­rel Mall.

En­tries are $10 for a chance to win $5,000 in Penn­syl­va­nia In­stant Lot­tery tick­ets in ad­di­tion to the hol­i­day-themed “Twas the Night Be­fore Christmas” dis­play it­self made of in­stant lot­tery tick­ets.

In ad­di­tion, the Cigar Box do­nates $500 to the char­ity of the win­ner’s choice, so not only will there be a lucky jack­pot win­ner from the area, but it will ben­e­fit a lo­cal char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tion.

A Cigar Box cus­tomer will be the win­ner. The draw­ing will be held Dec. 23 in front of the Cigar Box store in Lau­rel Mall. All are wel­come to at­tend, but those in­ter­ested do not need to be present to win.

Past dis­plays in­cluded a gin­ger­bread house, fire­place dis­play, Santa’s sleigh, Christmas vil­lage, Santa on a train, Santa’s toyland, a Christmas tree and the Nutcracker cas­tle, all made with $5,000 in Christmas-themed in­stant lot­tery tick­ets.

Some of the past char­i­ties that ben­e­fited from this an­nual event are the Amer­i­can Red Cross, Haz let on An­i­mal Shel­ter, Brookhill An­i­mal Hos­pi­tal, United First Pres­by­te­rian Church cloth­ing and food drive, Vic­tory Bi­ble Church Aid to the Home­less, Make-A-Wish Foun­da­tion, Wounded War­riors and Chil­dren’s Mir­a­cle Net­work, all cho­sen by the win­ners.

The Cigar Box also has the same $5,000 lot­tery dis­play to be won at its lo­ca­tion at the Coal Creek Com­merce Cen­ter in Saint Clair.
