Waxhaw, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/02/2014 -- The Isabella Santos Foundation, one of the largest Charlotte non-profit organizations, has announced their 1st Annual Purple Ticket Campaign. The charity organization has been raising money to aid in the fight against Neuroblastoma, a rare pediatric cancer. Since their inception in 2009, they have raised over one million dollars through various events.
The Purple Ticket Campaign is a raffle contest that offers participants a chance to win big while also giving to a great cause. The event, which began on November 1st, will end ticket sales on December 17, 2014 with the winner announced shortly afterward. Those interested in purchasing tickets, which are $100 per ticket, can find a link to the ticket sale site on the Isabella Santos Foundation Facebook page.
The key to this nationwide raffle is that there are only 300 tickets available for purchase. The limited quantity means the odds of winning start at 1 in 300, giving participants a much higher chance of winning than they would have in local and national lotteries. The lucky winner will receive a $10,000 prize. The remaining $20,000 will go towards Neuroblastoma research and to the aid of families affected by this cancer. Everyone that takes part in the event is a winner as they will have the comfort of knowing their year-end tax deductible donation helped a great cause.
The non-profit based in Charlotte is heavily involved in a variety of other charitable events, including an annual 5K and an annual blood drive. To learn more about the Purple Ticket Campaign, visit their website or send them an email today. For those that do not want to participate in the raffle, but would still like to donate, the website has a "Donate" section where users can make a reoccurring or one-time donation.
