Volunteer Firemen’s Carnival Raffle: You Can’t Win If You Don’t Buy A Ticket!

For the first time in quite a while, the Orange Volunteer Fire Department was allowed to mail raffle tickets through the US Postal Service. They sent them out a month or so ago, so everyone should have received them by now. If you have your tickets, don’t forget to fill them out and send them back with your payment (Still a bargain at only $5 each)

During the years when the Postal Service prohibited them from sending the tickets out, the OVFD was down thousands of dollars in its usual Carnival income, which greatly affected the department and all the dedicated men and women who volunteer their time to serve the community.

The Firemen’s Carnival is the department’s major fundraiser of the year and the majority of the money comes from the raffle ticket sales. The OVFD depends upon these funds to pay for equipment and training so it can offer the town of Orange the very best service possible.

For decades, raffle prizes were things you could see right there under the raffle tent. Riding mowers, leaf blowers, etc, but as the times changed, so did the type of prizes that are donated for the cause.

And who wouldn’t want to win just about any one of these eleven prizes?

Here’s this year’s list:

1st Prize – $7,000 Visa Gift Card – People’s Bank

2nd Prize – $3,500 Visa Gift Card – People’s Bank
