Christine Burroughs, CEO of INNVISION, Silicon Valley's largest nonprofit homeless provider, announces the launching of their first annual Million $ Raffle. This will include several early bird drawings and a GRAND PRIZE of either a $1.2 million penthouse (at City Heights Tower in Downtown San Jose, built by Barry Swenson Builder) or $ 1 MILLION IN CASH - winner's choice!
The grand prize will be awarded at the annual GALA to be held on Friday, OCTOBER 3RD at the Santa Clara Marriott. Tickets for the drawings are available for $150 each (up to 3 people can be named on a ticket), and for those purchasing multiple tickets, an additional drawing will be available that night. ONLY 18,000 TICKETS WILL BE SOLD. Purchase early to take advantage of the early bird drawings. Each ticket will be eligible for all of the drawings.
These are challenging times for non-profits to raise money to sustain and build programs. This type of fundraiser has been successful in other California cities and is now being featured in Silicon Valley for the first time...what a great way to take a chance on winning a penthouse or other prizes while providing housing for the homeless in this local community.
INNVISION operates 20 sites from San Jose to Menlo Park to aid and care for those less fortunate. Over 1000 people a day access its services, and each year InnVision serves over 16,000 people, and 500,000 meals. For 35 years InnVision has been developing housing and resources to help the most critical in need become stable and self-sufficient.
