This year alone, we’ve provided more than $7,000 to help the hearing and vision impaired.”

“We also wanted to remind participants that more than one name may be on a ticket,” Sokolowski said. “In addition, requests for a special number will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis, and that you need not be present to win.

“Every ticket sold will be in the drum for every drawing and you can win more than once. Taxes are the responsibility of the winner.

“Each ticket purchased allows two adults to attend the drawing and enjoy food, drink, and entertainment the day of the drawing.  To give yourself the best chance of reserving your lucky numbers and winning our final Early Bird drawing, we urge you to return your applications as soon as possible.”
