Lucky Ticket event to raise funds for the Sinai Temple education program

The Sinai Temple will host a Lucky Ticket fund-raiser on Jan. 21 to benefit its education program. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and drawings will begin at 8 p.m.

The event gives participants a chance to win hundreds of prizes that range in value from $5 to over $200.This event is open to everyone, Sinai members and non-members.

All items will be laid out on tables with a "ticket" container assigned to each one. Participants will purchase tickets, and place them in containers of items they are interested in winning.

Tickets will be color-coded. This means that items which will be on the "white" table will require "white" tickets. Items on the "green" table require "green" tickets. All items will be awarded on the night of the event, and winners must be present to claim their prizes.

The cost of admission is $5 in advance, and $7 at the door, per person (Children under 5 are free). Admission passes will include 30 tickets (25 white/ five green). Grand prize tickets are sold separately. All proceeds will benefit the Sinai Temple Religious School.
