Tarboro Chamber to host fundraising raffle


From Staff Reports

Monday, August 6, 2018

Every year around this time, folks in Tarboro line up to be a loser.

The TECC-TIME Reverse Raffle makes winners losers and losers winners. As raffle tickets are drawn, each winner loses their chance at being the biggest loser of the night and pocketing $3,000. Other prizes will be up for grabs as well at the annual fundraiser for the Tarboro-Edgecombe Chamber of Commerce.

The reverse raffle is set to begin at 6 p.m. Aug. 23 and run until a loser is announced.

The event will once again be held at Mobley Atrium on the Tarboro campus of Edgecombe Community College.

The event also features a live silent auction and great food — all for $75 a ticket, which admits two people and includes dinner, beverages and raffle entry. In addition to the Reverse Raffle there will also be second chance tickets, sideboards for $5 and $10 and a deck of cards raffle. Along with the raffle fun, the silent auction offers an awesome array of great gifts and gift certificates donated to the Chamber for the event.

Tickets can be purchased by calling 252-823-7241 or emailing chamber@tarborochamber.com.

Purchase a ticket by Aug. 1 to be entered into the “Early Bird” Raffle and a chance to win an additional $150.

The event is a sellout every year. There are limited tickets being sold. Advanced tickets sales only. Tickets cannot be purchased at the door.

This year’s theme is “fishing” and having a REEL’y good time.

Anyone interested in being a sponsor and showcasing their business can call the Chamber at 252-823-7241 for more information.
