Tabor College Project SEARCH to host fundraiser raffle at ball games

Tabor College Project SEARCH will host a raffle at 5 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 26, at the Tabor men’s and women’s basketball games with Bethel College.

Tickets will be sold before the women’s game and continue through the first half of the men’s game.

This event highlights the Tabor College Project SEARCH interns’ progress in the program, and to raise money for the operational cost of the program.

“Many people do not know what Project Search does here and the basketball game is a great way to show the community what is going on,” said Kristen Martens, interim business liaison for Project SEARCH.

“We would love for the community to come out to support the interns. There will also be a Amazon gift basket raffled off drawn during the men’s game.”

The program is focused on the development of the interns so that each individual can obtain employment by the end of the program in May 2019.

Highlighting the interns brings awareness to the area community to enhance the opportunities for the interns’ employment.

“This is a special event for our interns as they have the opportunity to be highlighted for all their hard work and dedication to the program,” said Rob Haude, program coordinator.

“We are thankful that Tabor has allowed Project SEARCH to be the focus of the halftime events, as well as the opportunity to raise money for Project SEARCH.”

With a raffle ticket purchase, participants will have the opportunity to win a $50 Amazon gift card, Fire TV Stick 4K, Amazon Echo Dot and a Project SEARCH T-shirt.

A winner for the raffle will be chosen at halftime of the men’s basketball game.
