The next drawing for an early-bird prize is Dec. 14. Each ticket for the program is $100. The raffle tickets have sold out for the last two years, said Dennis Sabo, the hospital’s spokesman. This year they’re selling faster than ever with only about 400 of the 1,553 tickets remaining.
“That is crazy. Get them fast,” Sabo said. “They may sell out by Christmas.”
Proceeds from the raffle benefit women’s and children’s programs at the hospital, including helping uninsured or underinsured women afford mammograms.
