FULTON, New York (March 14, 2011) – Oswego County Opportunities, Inc. (OCO) will hold their annual Golden Opportunities Raffle Drawing this upcoming April 2nd, and eight lucky individuals will walk away with cash prizes of up to $10,000, according to Diane Cooper-Currier, Executive Director at OCO.
The drawing will be held in conjunction with OCO’s Annual Bowl-A-Fun and 45th Anniversary Birthday Bash event that will be held that day at Lakeview Lanes in Fulton. The raffle drawing will take place at 5:30 at OCO’s Fulton Office location.
The annual fundraising raffle directly benefits Oswego County Opportunities, Inc. and the extensive human services and outreach they provide the Oswego County community.
“The proceeds from our raffle will directly help people get out of poverty; will put food on their family’s table; restore someone’s health; put a roof over a head; and bring a smile to the faces of children, young adults and families,” said Cooper-Currier. “We greatly appreciate the support we receive from the community for this annual fundraiser,” she added. “We still have some tickets available and hope that individuals and families will consider helping us reach our goal this year.”
According to Cooper-Currier, 1,000 tickets are sold for the drawing, and prizes range from $5,000 to $250. Tickets are $20 each and available at: OCO, Inc. 239 Oneida St., Fulton; OCO Midtown Office – Lower Level, Oswego; and a printable ticket application is available at www.oco.org.
