Choices Raffle is the hottest ticket in town
Choices 2017, the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando's annual women's philanthropy event, is an evening to socialize, catch up with old friends and make new ones, all while supporting the local Jewish community. But one of the many "bonuses" of attending is that you could walk away with one (or more) of the valuable prizes offered in the Choices Raffle.
This year-so far-the Federation has secured more than $8,000 worth of raffle prizes, ranging from artwork to hotel/dining packages to teeth whitening-and, of course, some stunning pieces of jewelry.
Women who attend Choices have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for $25 each (or 5 tickets for $100). Tickets in hand, the women get to choose which item(s) they would like to win and deposit their ticket in the appropriate ticket bowl during the event on Feb. 9 at Congregation Ohev Shalom in Maitland. Drawings are held for all of the raffle items at the end of the evening.
Raffle prizes are donated by retailers, artists, businesses and individuals. Money raised from the raffle goes to support the Federation's Annual Campaign and to defray the cost of putting on Choices.
The Choices ambassadors and co-chairs have lined up several impressive items for this year's raffle, and they will continue to work hard behind the scenes right up until the event to secure additional prizes, all of which will be on display at Choices.
The full, updated listing of raffle items can be found on the Federation's special Choices webpage (www.jfgo.org/choices). Here's a look at a few of the great items that will be given away on Feb. 9:
