Family Promise is a program to alleviate homelessness among families in White and Habersham counties. Our clients, or “guests,” are families that are solid in structure but needing a helping hand to recover from temporary setbacks that have left them without secure housing and uncertainty about feeding and caring for their children. As you probably know, Nacoochee Presbyterian Church is one of the churches in our area that take turns hosting a family for a week.
The Family Promise Reverse Raffle is the organization’s primary annual fund-raising event, raising money for operations and the needs of our guests. We sell no more than 300 tickets for the raffle. Each donor is entitled to participate in our celebration dinner (for two) and raffle drawing. The winning ticket(s) rece
ives all or part of the $10,000 grand prize. More than two dozen door prizes are awarded as consolation prizes to those whose tickets are drawn early. Come join the fun, and you just might win money or other prize while you’re helping Family Promise help families.
This year’s Reverse Raffle event will be held March 14 at 6:30 pm in the Unicoi Lodge ballroom. For more information, contact Bill Owen.
