Raffle tickets for the Orange Volunteer Fire Department’s carnival are still a bargain at only $5 each
As most of you know, the dedicated men and women of the OVFD volunteer their time to serve the community. Day or night, freezing cold or brutal heat, they are there, just as they were last Sunday morning at 6 a.m. when an alarm went off at Applebee’s Restaurant (everything’s okay). When they get the call, they leave their homes and respond wherever they’re needed.
In return, you can help support them and their operations by attending the carnival and reaching into your wallets to buy a raffle ticket or two or three, or more. And don’t forget the 50/50 raffle where you could win 1/2 the pot and the OVFD gets the other 1/2.
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?
