February fundraising raffle benefiting Make-A-Wish Foundation


Tickets Sold: 272

February 26 would be Jackson Panzarello's 17th birthday. It is a birthday that he didn't live to see. Childhood cancer robbed his family and friends from seeing the person he would have grown up to be. With your help, we can take strides to help a wish come true for children battling serious illnesses such as cancer. The fundraising effort directly benefits the Make-A-Wish chapter that Jackson supported during his fight against terminal cancer in 2011-2012.

* Raffle prize winners to be drawn by 11-year-old Harlee Melon.
* 2 raffle drawings will be conducted: February 17 (early bird) and February 26.

    QUESTIONS: For questions about the raffle, please email Larry.

    When Jackson Panzarello was 8 years old, he participated in a fundraising effort for Make-A-Wish to help a local child fulfill a wish. This was an organization he believed in and personally supported. Cancer claimed his life in June 2012, but his everlasting legacy continues through the incredible difference we've made in so many lives through charity fundraising. The dates of the drawings have additional meaning. February 17 would be Karsyn Bratch's 16th birthday, and February 26 would be Jackson's 17th birthday. Their lives were taken far too soon by childhood cancer. Make-A-Wish is 501(c)(3) organization. All donations may be tax-deductible in the United States.
