More than 10,000 students are enrolled at Chattahoochee Tech campuses this fall, including more than 1,300 in Canton and Woodstock.

Tickets are now available for the Chattahoochee Tech Foundation’s popular Reverse Raffle annual fundraiser slated for Thursday, Oct. 10, at the Chattahoochee Tech North Metro Campus in Acworth.

“The Reverse Raffle has proven to be such a fun community event that the tickets sell out fast,” said Susan Stephens, Chattahoochee Tech Foundation Secretary and Reverse Raffle Committee Chair. “Our goal is to net $50,000 at this year’s event, with all proceeds dedicated to helping students in need at Chattahoochee Tech.”

“Unlike a typical raffle, the purchaser of the last ticket drawn wins the grand prize at the

Reverse Raffle, so the excitement builds throughout the evening,” said Stephens. “Along with the $5,000 grand prize, this year’s event also features door prizes and a silent auction, plus music and great food.”

Thanks to the generosity of its donors, the Chattahoochee Tech Foundation is able to provide a significant amount of help to Chattahoochee Tech students throughout the year, according to Stephens. In Fiscal Year 2019, the Chattahoochee Tech Foundation awarded $92,000 in scholarship funds to well-deserving students, issued $8,000 in emergency grant funds to students at risk of not continuing their education due to unexpected financial dilemmas, and provided $4,600 in textbooks, bus passes and temporary housing to students in need.

Tickets to the Reverse Raffle are $100 each and include dinner as well as a chance for the $5,000 grand prize, noted Stephens. Sponsorships also are available, which include additional raffle tickets, logo promotion and sponsor recognition at the event.
