  $20,000 Raffle for the Wood Truck  
Hosted By: Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly

First Prize  - $7,918.20  anonymous Bergland MI
Second Prize  - $1,148.80  Dan Schneider Lake Linden
Third Prize  - $477.00 Jim McInnes Chelsea MI  

We sold 477 tickets out of a possible 1200, we did raise enough money to purchase the truck.  We've taken delivery of the 2014 Chevy 2500 HD and sent it to the customizer to install the dump kit.

We are raising money to replace our 1988 Wood Delivery Truck.  After 2+ decades of faithful service it's finally worn out.

We give away firewood to our elderly friends in the Copper Country who use it for home heating.  On a small, fixed Social Security check, oil and propane quickly become unaffordable. Our gift of firewood is a much needed and much appreciated way to stretch the budget.

Your purchase of a raffle ticket will help us replace our wood truck with something reliable and modern.  We've already put in a rebuilt engine and rear differential to extend its life, but it is no longer economic to keep repairing this 26 year old vehicle.

You may not want to participate in a raffle.  We offer the option of a straight donation, to be matched 1:1 by anonymous donors.  Here's a chance to double your donation!  Right now, $7,500 is committed for this match.

The Alden and Vada Dow Foundation has already committed $10,000.  This raffle, if all the tickets sell, will bring in another $24,000.

We will replace our old truck with a lightly used, recent model, 4 wheel drive one ton truck.  With the addition of a dump box and a snowplow the replacement will cost about $40,000. 

Please, register your entry or your donation today!
