WILMINGTON — A fun evening is again planned for the annual Reverse Raffle & Dinner to benefit the Wilmington Area Humane Society.

It’s set for 6-10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23 at the Fraternal Order of Eagles, 141 E. Sugartree St., Wilmington, where area residents are invited to enjoy music, food and multiple raffles.

If you love animals or wish to support WAHS and have a great time while doing it, this event is for you.

Those purchasing a ticket for the Reverse Raffle & Dinner will have the chance to win through the featured raffle — a cash prize of up to $2,000. A 32-inch LED HD TV donated by Osborn Farms Trucking will be raffled off in another raffle.

A 50/50 raffle and multiple other raffles will be featured. Local businesses and members of the community are generously donating a number of items to be raffled throughout the evening. Some of the items already donated include one-night stays at area hotels, meals, oil changes, hair/beauty treatments, gift baskets and more.

Items are still being accepted for the raffles; if you would like to make a donation, please email [email protected] .

Cost for the Reverse Raffle and Dinner is a $25 minimum donation and includes one raffle ticket entry and dinner. Only 250 tickets will be sold for the Reverse Raffle (need not be present to win).

Tickets may be purchased at D & G’s Paws and Claws Snack Shack, 5356 US 68 North, Wilmington, between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday or by PayPal, memo Reverse Raffle. Non ticket holders are welcome to make a $10 donation at the door for dinner and the night’s events.

Proceeds from the benefit will provide much needed funds to assist with the care and feeding of the animals that WAHS helps.

WAHS is a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt organization, an all-volunteer non-profit formed to promote the welfare of dogs and cats in Clinton County and operating an all volunteer-run shelter housing dogs and cats for adoption by the public.

WAHS provides programs to residents of this area and its mission is to nurture and strengthen the human/animal bond.
