A total of 6,000 tickets are available for sale, and a minimum 4,000 tickets will need to be sold in order to raffle off the estimated $400,000 west valley Yakima home.  If the 4,000 ticket threshold is not met, the raffle will revert to a 50/50 drawing, less expenses.

“As a non-profit school who relies on fundraising to support our students, we are so excited to have this opportunity once again to raise funds for scholarships while providing a hands-on learning experience for our students through the raffle campaign,” said Christine Coté, President of Perry Technical Institute. “With Harvest Auto and many more sponsors coming on board to support the students, we have really hit the ground running, and feel like with the community’s support we can reach the minimum 4,000 tickets in order to raffle off the house.”

In 2019, Perry Tech introduced their first ‘Win a Home’ raffle campaign as a way to raise funds for student scholarships. With a maximum of 6,000 tickets available, 4,000 tickets were required to be sold in order to raffle off the 2,245 square foot west valley Yakima home. While the 4,000 tickets sold threshold was not met, a 50/50 drawing took place on Saturday, January 9, 2021 where the winning ticket holder won more than $120,000.

The raffle is sponsored by Harvest Auto where profits from ticket sales will benefit student scholarships.
