The Arc cash raffle is underway, with participants having a chance to win a grand prize of $10,000 or other second and third place prizes of $1,500 and $500. This fundraiser is presented by The Friends of The Arc Foundation with proceeds from the raffle benefiting under and unfunded programs of The Arc, Oneida-Lewis Chapter.

Raffle tickets are $20 each, with only 2,000 being sold. Information on how to purchase tickets directly from The Arc is available online at or by calling 315-982-2755.

“Our Foundation was forced to postpone or cancel traditional fundraising events due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Friends of The Arc Foundation President Adrienne Carbone. “We’re hoping to raise crucial funds while providing a fun way for people to help our cause and possibly win great prizes.”

All prizes will be drawn on Tax Day, Thursday, April 15th. Winners need not be present to win and will be notified. Participants must be 18 or older to enter. All rules and regulations regarding the Arc Cash Raffle can be found online at The Arc, Oneida-Lewis Chapter’s website.
