Why won't Illinois politicians reform their own pensions? That's a good question. They're eager to blame state employees and other government workers for Illinois's budget problems, yet they ignore their own bankrupt pension system, while the tax payers pay year after year to keep politicians in their Cadillac pensions. If Illinois pension reform is to happen then the corrupt politicians…

Madigan's bill was nothing more political grand standing and was designed to fool the foolish. He thinks the public is stupid, especially his supporters, but anybody with a brain can see through his subterfuge. Madigan and his co-conspirator Cullerton passed a continuing appropriation last year in the hopes of hiding the annual raises from the tax payers and not requiring a vote by the corrupt…

More than 2,500 tickets already sold for Catholic Schools Mega Raffle

3 years, 3 months ago by Bob Gough

Just as was the case last year, the tickets for the Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools and Quincy Notre Dame Foundations'  2nd Annual “Everybody Wins” Mega Raffle are going fast.

Kurt Stuckman of the QND Foundation said more than 2000 tickets were sold on Saturday during the kickoff event at the Quincy Mall. He said another 500 were turned in this morning.

Stuckman said he anticipated more tickets being turned in by coordinators at each parish later today. He said the "worst-case scenario" would be having tickets left by the end of the week, meaning he anticipates the remaining 1500 being sold before then.

The grand prize is $100,000. Second prize is a choice of either a 2012 Chevy Cruz or Chevy Silverado.  Third prize is $10,000. 

Tickets are $100 each.  The first 4,000 tickets sold and brought to the QND Foundation office will be entered into the drawing.  All ticket sales are final and non-refundable. You need not be present to win.

A total of 110 prizes totaling $162,250 will be awarded.  There is a 1 in 36 chance of winning $100.  The top 80 prizes will be drawn on at the Mega Event on Saturday, June 2, 2012, at 6:00 p.m. on the St. Anthony Parish grounds.  A complete list of prizes, drawings, rules and frequently asked questions for the 2012 “EVERYBODY WINS” Mega Raffle can be found at www.quincymegaraffle.org.
