Limited Ticket $30,000 Vehicle Raffle Is Underway!

Since our recent State VFW Midwinter Conference, raffle tickets have been distributed to participating Wisconsin VFW Posts as we set out to secure additional funding for our State Veterans Service Office and other supporting projects serving Wisconsin Veterans. If your Post does not have tickets to sell, please contact your District Commander. Ticket sales are limited to 30,000 only, so the odds are very good for participants. In addition to a $30,000 top prize which may be used toward a vehicle of your choice from one of Wisconsin’s largest auto dealerships, Bergstrom Automotive, there are also other cash prizes to be awarded as well. If you are a friend of Veterans, please contact your nearby VFW Post and ask for a ticket. The $10 ticket price is a small enough risk but adds up fast to make a big difference in our ability to take care of all Wisconsin Veterans! Thank you for your support! Can’t find a local Post selling these great tickets? Contact our State Headquarters Office for help! (608) 221-5276
