144 Envelopes Fundraiser 2021

Thank you to everyone who participated in our 144 Envelopes Fundraiser this Spring! Every envelope sold (whether a winning envelope or not) helped us in our efforts to make Lewis County a better place to live, work, and play.

The money made from this fundraiser goes towards the Chamber of Commerce, local businesses, the Lewis County Mural Project, and Leadership Academy.

About $5,000 raised from the Fundraiser went directly to our businesses – as we purchased each prize from the businesses directly. The remaining funds raised go towards our efforts at the Chamber and our ongoing products within Lewis County.

Our ten winners were drawn on May 7th via Facebook Live.

What is the 144 Envelopes Fundraiser?

A fundraiser to support local businesses and the Chamber.

It is a fundraiser to help our local small businesses & the Chamber to continue accomplishing our mission to promote business & economic activity in Lewis County. All prizes are being purchased from (not donated by) local Chamber businesses!

How does this fundraiser work?

Each envelope contains a corresponding number of entries in the prize drawing.

Envelopes 1-20 each have 20 entries in them, from Envelope 21 on each envelope has the number of entries tickets in it as the envelope is numbered. So envelope 123 has 123 entries, envelope 77 has 77 entries and so on.

If the envelopes are “too big” you can split them with a friend!

This year instead of raffle tickets and raffle ticket numbers your name and envelope number will be entered according to your envelope number. Meaning, if you buy envelope 118 your name will be entered 118 times under your name and envelope number, and etc.

When will the winners be drawn?

May 7th, 2021 is the day of the drawing!

We will draw the winners for all 10 packages on May 7th.

All raffle tickets go into the same pot and you have TEN chances to win! The bigger your envelope – the higher your chance of winning.

What can I win?

The grand prize is $1000 in County Ca$h!

What is County Ca$h you ask?

County Ca$h is a gift certificate program that works just like cash. Simply purchase your County Ca$h and spend it on whatever you want – merchandise, services, food, or gas at any participating business!
