To view the house, a community wide open house will be held on March 9 and 10 from 2 pm to 4pm.
“The annual House Raffle always creates excitement in the community – as it offers a beautiful new house, a new vehicle, cash prizes, and great odds to win,” said Ann Rathburn-Lacopo, chief development officer for the Foundation of SJRMC. “The fact that we can utilize a fun event like House Raffle to continue to raise money to serve our community through SJRMC’s Sister Maura Brannick, CSC Health Center and the Women’s Care Center—it motivates people to help two great causes!”
