At $1 per ticket, area residents have a chance to win one of eight weekend getaways in the state or a Husker tailgate package.

Proceeds from the raffle, whose winners will be drawn Sept. 27, will benefit the Nebraska Child Support Enforcement Association and the training of its workers.

Karen Baker, who works in the Chase County office, coordinated the drawing. She is fundraising chairman for the Association.

The weekend getaways are in the following communities—Imperial, McCook, North Platte, Ogallala, Valentine, Scottsbluff, Kearney and Grand Island. The getaways include golf in many locations, dinner for two, lodging and more.

The Husker tailgate package includes game tickets, a grill and more.

Each ticket buyer will have a chance at all nine prizes, Baker said. The winners will be drawn at the annual conference for the Child Support Enforcement Association in Grand Island Sept. 27.

Only 4,999 tickets will be sold across the state, Baker said.

In Chase County, tickets can be purchased in Imperial at Pinnacle Bank, Pizza Hut, Beverage Barn, Capitol Liquor and Alco. In Wauneta, they are being sold at Crossroads, Tommy’s Sports Club II and Good Times.
