JDRF Raffle Tickets

If you’ve been selling JDRF raffle tickets, be sure to bring the stubs with you and turn them in at the JDRF Tent. PLEASE DO NOT place the ticket stubs in the donation envelopes you turn in that day, as they will not make it into the drawing. Remember, the raffle ticket drawing takes place on April 18, so you still have a few weeks to sell them!  They will also be available for sale on Walk Day.  There are two grand prizes (2-Bluegreen Vacation Stays) an lots of other prizes including certificates to stores, restaurants and more.

Unable to Join Us at the Walk?

You can still be a part of the cure!  Register as a Virtual Walker at www.walk.jdrf.org – send out emails to family and friends – and let them know how important their support is.

Remember, when you ask someone to support you, you’re not simply asking them for a donation … you’re asking them to INVEST in a cure!
