Tickets available now for ‘Nifty 50’ Raffle benefiting United Way of South Mississippi

You have a chance to win $50,000 and also benefit the local community.

The United Way of South Mississippi’s Nifty 50 raffle is underway. Tickets are $100 a piece and put you in the barrel for the big cash prize and 70 door prizes.

United Way of South Mississippi serves Hancock, Harrison, Pearl River, and Stone counties. Their focus is on bettering education, health care, and financial stability for families.

The money collected in the Nifty 50 raffle will go towards the St. Vincent De Paul Community Pharmacy, Boys and Girls Clubs on the Coast, CASA, and the Center for Non-Violence, to name a few.

The winner of the $50,000 will be pulled on October 28th. There’s also a special prize for early birds. Kathy Springer with the United Way of South Mississippi said, “If you get your ticket before 5 o’clock on August 31st, you’re in it for the early bird drawing which is a package to Harrah’s Gulf Coast. If you win that you do go back in the barrel for the $50,000 grand prize.”

To buy your ticket text Nifty50 to 91999 or visit the United Way of South Mississippi’s website. Only 1,500 tickets will be sold so there’s no telling when they’ll run out.
