DENVER (CBS4) – The Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver are raffling off a multi-million dollar house along with thousands of other prizes as part of the Denver Dream House Raffle.
This is the 11th year the Boys & Girls Clubs have held a fundraising raffle. The grand prize is a contemporary house in the Cherry Creek area, or $2 million in cash. The custom-built home features 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a heated 3-car garage, a gourmet chef’s kitchen, backyard living spaces, and a climate-controlled wine cellar.
“The home this year is stunning. It’s a beautiful, stylish five bedroom home. It’s in the heart of Cherry Creek. It’s got an incredible master suite — that’s one of my favorite features — beautiful kitchen nook,” Boys & Girls Clubs spokeswoman Gail Branstetter said.
In addition to the grand prize, there are 2,750 other prizes ranging from new vehicles, to luxury trips, and electronics. The chances of winning a prize are 1 in 20. Tickets cost $150 for one, $400 for three, and $550 for five. The Grand Prize Drawing will be held May 10.
Tickets bought before Feb. 15 and March 22 will be eligible for two Early Bird drawings. Prizes include a Porsche, a trip to New Zealand and cash. The Early Bird drawings will be held March 1 and April 5. Those who buy three or more tickets will be eligible for a special bonus prize of a Mini Cooper S convertible or $45,000, which will be awarded at the end of the raffle.
There is also a 50/50 Add-On Drawing. Tickets for this drawing are $20 for one, $50 for three, $75 for six. The jackpot for this drawing is the total of all the tickets sold and will be split between the Boys & Girls Clubs and the winner. You have to have bought a Denver Dream House Raffle ticket to participate in this drawing.
Proceeds from the Raffle go directly to the 16 Boys & Girls Clubs across the Denver Metro Area, to pay for programming, hot meals, and supplies.
The deadline to buy tickets for the Grand Prize Drawing is April 26.
