A Message From Mike Petrane

I am on the board of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mercer County because I believe that growing up is hard, and that every child needs a dedicated circle of support to reach their potential. I am so proud to continue my longstanding position on this board. The children of our communities need our assistance – they face family and peer challenges every day. Big Brothers Big Sisters is the oldest, largest and most effective youth mentoring organization in the United States, developing positive relationships that have a direct and lasting impact on the lives of young people. The Big Brothers Big Sisters mission is to help children reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with mentors that have a measurable impact on youth. A personal mentor is a great gift for a child in hardship.

I would appreciate it if you would participate in the 2018 “SWEET RIDE” RAFFLE in support of BBBS – it promises to be a unique and exciting event once again, and HUGE THANK YOU to all of you “repeat participants” that have already joined up in 2018!!! This year’s raffle includes some great prize choices that will "upgrade your ride"! Our annual raffle is one of the most important ways that we keep our doors open and I am asking that you consider lending your support.

On Wednesday September 26th at the Salt Creek Grille in Princeton Forrestal Village, BBBS will draw the winning ticket in the challenge. If you are the lucky winner, you get to pick from the prize list of vehicles! Tickets are $100 each and you have great odds since a maximum of only 1,299 are sold.

Car Raffle Challenge 2018

About This Event

A total of 1,017 tickets were sold in our 2018 SweetRideRaffle.  Our winner is Barbara from Crosswicks,NJ who won with ticket #939, that she bought from board member Deb Runyon.  Barbara and her husband had each purchased a ticket and 9/26being his birthday, thought his ticket had won when he answered the phone.  Barbara was thrilled and said her husband had been complaining about her “rusty” old car for years - so in a way, it was a nice birthday present for him.  Congratulations to Barbara (and Dave!). 

Thanks to all for playing – this is a BIG win for the kids.
