VAN WERT — Van Wert Elks Lodge 1197 is selling raffle tickets for a chance to win two home season tickets for the Ohio State University football games (seven home games). In addition to the two sets of tickets, the winner will receive one night’s stay at the Columbus Marriott Northwest in Dublin, Ohio.

All proceeds from the raffle benefit the Ohio Elks Association State Major Project – Cerebral Palsy.

Each state association has a major project and the Ohio Elks Association’s major project is the treatment of cerebral palsy. Each year the Ohio Elks raise thousands of dollars which are then donated to treatment centers throughout the state to aid those with cerebral palsy.

For those who are interested, tickets can be purchased at the lodge or from the lodge cerebral palsy chairman, Jerry Mazur. Tickets are $5 each. The drawing will be held on Saturday, Aug. 26 at the Ohio Elks Association Fall Reunion in Dublin, Ohio.
