Support Local Restaurants in Essex Child & Family Raffle

April 8, 2021 - May 21, 2021

Twelve lucky winners will soon be enjoying gift card meals in Essex, Deep River, or Chester restaurants because they purchased Let’s Eat Out! raffle tickets. The raffle, sponsored by the Essex Child & Family Auxiliary, promotes business for local restaurants that have struggled during the pandemic, while also showing appreciation for owners and staff.

The Auxiliary is declaring that help is on the way! Community members can jumpstart the revenue flow for the restaurants by participating in this “win-win” fundraiser. Raffle ticket buyers win great prizes, the restaurants increase income, and the Auxiliary receives funds for charitable endeavors. The success of the fundraiser depends on widespread participation from the public. Everyone can participate and give back to the community.

The Auxiliary will purchase gift cards from approximately 37 restaurants in the towns of Essex, Deep River, and Chester. The gift cards valued at $25, $50, and $75 are prizes in a virtual raffle drawing scheduled for 3:00 pm on Friday, May 21 at the Essex Fire Station. Raffle tickets cost $20.00 each and will be sold by the Auxiliary membership throughout the area. Tickets can also be purchased online at letsEATOUTraffle.org.  Tickets are available for purchase April 5-May 16.

Twelve lucky winners will be taking home gift cards for restaurants in Essex, Chester, and Deep River. Three winners will receive $750 in gift cards, four winners will receive $500 in gift cards, and five winners will receive $250 in gift cards. Gift cards do not expire and are redeemable for food only, no alcohol.

Net proceeds from the raffle will benefit the capital projects and services of Child & Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut. The Agency nurtures children and families to develop their strengths through its service, partnership, and advocacy. The Agency, like local restaurants, has suffered the loss of income during the COVID pandemic.

For more information on the purchase of raffle tickets contact Susan Senning at 860-388-7667 or Pat Thompson at 860-227-7551.
