C.R.A.V.E electronic raffle in support of Lanark County Interval House continues
Lanark County Interval House and Community Support is offering the chance to win $100,000 with their C.R.A.V.E electronic raffle! LCIHCS supporters look forward to annual events like Violet Femmes and Feed the Fight which are, once again, cancelled due to COVID-19. Instead, LCIHCS is offering participants a chance to win big!
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a big impact in the number of incidences of gender-based violence. “We have seen a 75 per cent increase in crisis calls due to the pandemic,” said Executive Director Erin Lee. “Incidences of violence in our community are on the rise and the pandemic has worsened these unfortunate realities.”
C.R.A.V.E stands for Community Rules Against Violence Everywhere. LCHICS hopes the raffle will be a reminder that gender-based violence is an unfortunate reality in our community. Throughout the pandemic, lockdown measures were put in place to keep the community safe, but many women and children found themselves trapped at home with their abuser. The demand and need for the shelter is higher now than ever, at a time when fundraising is most challenging.
One lucky player will win $100,000. Raffle tickets can be purchased for $100 each from www.craveraffle.com. The draw will take place via Facebook Live at noon on June 16, 2021. All proceeds will go to Lanark County Interval House and Community Support. You must be 18 years or older and in Ontario at the time of purchase to be eligible to participate. The C.R.A.V.E raffle will be operating under lottery license RAF1199702.
