Choices Raffle is shaping up to be another hot ticket


March 16, 2018

Choices, the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando’s annual women’s philanthropy event, is a little more than a week away—the evening of March 26 at The Roth Family Jewish Community Center in Maitland.

Choices gives women in the local Jewish community an opportunity to socialize, catch up with old friends and make new ones, all while supporting the local Jewish community. In addition to the gifts they make to the Federation’s 2018 Annual Campaign, women at Choices also support the Federation through the very popular Choices Raffle.

The raffle is made up entirely of items generously donated by local businesses and individuals. Last year’s raffle netted more than $6,600 for the Federation.

This year’s raffle prizes are still coming in. So far, the prizes include everything from jewelry to wine to dining packages and more. Visit http://www.jfgo.org/choices for a full list of prizes.

A few standout items:

• Free weekend rental of a Mercedes sedan from Mercedes-Benz of Orlando

• The “I Love Park Avenue” package, which features items and gift certificates from Winter Park merchants, plus jewelry and sunglasses

• Weekend stays and dining at area hotels and resorts

• 3-month membership to RDV Sportsplex

• 4 tickets to an Orlando Magic regular-season game in 2018

One of the most popular raffle items each year is the reserved parking space on the Maitland Jewish Community Campus. The winner gets exclusive use of her/his own private space for a year. For 2018, the Federation has upped the ante, offering a reserved space at the Rosen JCC campus in South Orlando as well.

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 select which item(s) they would like to win and deposit their ticket in the appropriate ticket jar during the event. Drawings will be held throughout the latter part of the evening.

Raffle tickets can be purchased in advance on the Choices web page or in person at Choices 2018 on March 26. If you haven’t yet registered for Choices, you can do so online at http://www.jfgo.org/choices or by calling the Federation office at 407-645-5933, ext. 236.

The Federation is able to bring Choices to life thanks to the generosity of its sponsors. The Presenting Sponsor for Choices 2018 is Harriett’s Charitable Trust. The Diamond Sponsor is AVMedia, which will be handling the lighting and production. Orlando Health is a Ruby Sponsor.
