Chattahoochee Tech Foundation 2021 Reverse Raffle Returns to Campus

The Chattahoochee Tech Foundation will host its Reverse Raffle fundraiser in person this year on Thursday evening, Oct. 21, at the college’s North Metro Campus.

“Tickets are going fast, but there’s still time to purchase one of the remaining tickets or to become a sponsor,” said Vice President of Advancement Jennifer Nelson. “We’re very excited to be back in person for the Reverse Raffle this year. It promises to be a fun event filled with lots of great energy to support a great cause!”

The Reverse Raffle was held online in 2020 due to the pandemic, but still raised over $50,000 to help students in need. With a goal this year of raising $60,000, the 2021 Reverse Raffle features a Roaring ‘20s theme with a dessert and wine bar, and the chance for ticket holders to win a $5,000 grand prize. Unlike a traditional Raffle, the last ticket drawn will be announced as the grand prize winner. The 2021 Reverse Raffle also will feature a silent auction with items that include stays at beach condos and mountain cabins, Braves tickets, autographed items, jewelry, and artwork.

All proceeds from the Reverse Raffle will provide much-needed funding to deserving students for scholarships, emergency grants, and textbooks. “With so many students still feeling the impact of the pandemic, unexpected financial hardships can prevent them from continuing their education,” said Nelson. “Our goal is to help them stay enrolled through graduation at a time when the local workforce needs them more than ever.”

A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Chattahoochee Tech Foundation supports the mission of Chattahoochee Tech by making higher education an affordable reality for students. The Foundation awarded $110,000 in scholarships to deserving students in Fiscal Year 2021, and issued more than $39,000 in emergency grant funds. The Foundation also provided $36,000 for mobile hotspots, textbooks, bus passes, temporary housing, and other emergency expenses.
