Hospital Auxiliary’s Holiday Raffle Supports Local Health Care


JACKSONVILLE – Chances to win prizes ranging from a piece of the JHS Bowl to $100 gift certificates to use at local restaurants and shops can be purchased during the Jacksonville Memorial Auxiliary’s Holiday Raffle 2021.

“Our fundraiser this year truly has something for everyone,” said Tammy Winters, one of the raffle organizers. “The Holiday Raffle 2021 was created as a nod to our beloved bazaar and a way to kick off the holiday season.”

The holiday raffle, in combination with other fundraisers held throughout the year, replaces the Auxiliary’s Bazaar, presented annually in November for more than 65 years before the COVID-19 pandemic forced the group to reimagine its fundraising efforts.

Tickets are $5 each or six for $25. They may be purchased from any auxiliary member or by calling the Auxiliary Gift Shop at Jacksonville Memorial Hospital at 217-245-9541, ext. 3186.

The 11 prize packages will be on display during the Jacksonville Main Street Christkindlmarket event Friday-Saturday, Dec. 10-11. Raffle tickets may be purchased on-site.

Winners of each prize package will be drawn at 3:45 p.m. Dec. 11. A livestream of the drawing will be presented on the Jacksonville Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Facebook page.

Other organizers of the raffle are Rhonda Cors, Sandy Keesee, Cindy Johnson and Jan Willen.
