Amboy’s 50/50 Raffle May Shatter Records!
Up for a roadtrip this weekend? Well, you biffed it on that whole lottery dream. That was a bust. Wanna try your hand at Amboy's Depot Days 50/50 raffle? They draw on Sunday around 4...so you may want to take a ride to Amboy, Sublette, Dixon, Compton (apparently there's a Compton, Il) or Walton to get your tickets!
They are already pacing ahead of last year at this time, so they may set a new record & you WANT to be in on that!
With a population of 2,038 (according to wikipedia), Amboy Illinois hosts Depot Days August 24-27. I have no idea how the 50/50 drawing went from $8,400 in 2001 all the way up to $149,333 in 2015! Severe weather last year, brought the total down to ONLY $135,903…but they expect this year to SHATTER records!
All proceeds benefit community projects. Ticket sales will end at our discretion and winners announced at approximately 4:00 PM Sunday August 27th.2017
