FALCONER – A local organization dedicated to providing children with special needs the opportunity to participate in sporting events is holding an online raffle this week.
Exceptional Stars Athletics founder Rich Bianco says all proceeds benefit the program’s works.
A hand-crafted wooded American flag made by Jacob Youngberg, a round USA flag wall hanging made by Ginger Hitchcock, two 25 oz. tumblers made by Kylee Lindahl of Kylee’s Kreations, and a $40 gift certificate to Hippie Stitches run by Ashley Thierfeldt are available.
Furthermore, Julie Freling, a Dunkirk School 7 teacher, donated a set of four long-stem wine glasses with the Buffalo Bills logo and a Bills tie-dye t-shirt.
“We got all of these items from local people running super successful side gigs,” said Bianco. “They’re awesome, we’re supporting local small business in order to help raise funds for our group.”
Bianco says the raffle will run through Wednesday with a randomized drawing to determine prize winners.
Chances are available as follows:
- 1 chance for $5
- 5 chances for $20
- 15 chances for $40
- 25 chances for $50
