GREENCASTLE, Pa. — The United Way of Franklin County’s 250-ticket bonanza and silent auction will be held on Sunday, Nov. 4, from noon until 4 p.m. at Green Grove Gardens.

A $20 ticket provides one entry into the drawing to win the $1,000 grand prize sponsored by CenturyLink, a barbecue dinner for two provided by CM Pig Out, and beverages, including Coors Light, wine and non-alcoholic beverages.

Raffles, fishbowls, games and the opportunity to bid on silent auction items will continue throughout the afternoon.

Every 10th ticket drawn will win a prize that exceeds the face value of the ticket, and prizes include cash, gas cards, grocery cards and other gift cards donated by local businesses.

Kelly Spinner, 103.7 “Good Morning Tristate” Radio Host, will emcee the show as businesses from the community come together to provide games, prizes and items for the silent auction.

Major event sponsors are CenturyLink and Campbell Allstate Insurance with additional event support coming from area businesses.

Raffles will include cash prizes as well as gift cards for Dilly’s, Main Street Deli, Pat and Carla’s, Hat’s Heroes and other local favorites.

Among the raffled prizes is a Roku device, which is provided by CenturyLink. This new technology connects an Internet signal into the user’s television, allowing streaming music and video to be played through the television.
