OVHS is once again selling tickets for the Jim Click “Millions for Tucson” Raffle!
Tickets will be on sale at the Oro Valley Historical Society tent every Saturday at the Oro Valley Farmer’s Market (located at Steam Pump Ranch). Summer market hours are 8 a.m. to Noon.
Tickets are $25 each.
Mr. Click is donating a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit as the Grand Prize and will offer a second and third prize again, as well. The second prize is two round-trip, international, first-class plane tickets (some restrictions apply), and third prize is $5,000 cash.
Since 2003, Jim Click, Jr. has initiated eight raffles for charities in the Greater Tucson area and has donated a vehicle as the raffle prize.
Eligible 501c3 charities are encouraged to participate in the raffle with each charity keeping 100% of the proceeds raised. The raffle has been one of the many ways the Click family has been able to give back to the community that has given his family so much since they came to Tucson in 1974.
Buy a ticket! Be a WINNER!
