The Oak Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce has a history of providing quality family friendly events to the community, and one of those events is the Oak Harbor Independence Day Celebration. To help offset the costs of this event the Oak Harbor Chamber Foundation will be holding a Reverse Raffle May 12. Tickets are $50 and get you in the door, dinner and a chance to win over $5,000 in cash and prizes, with a top prize of $2,500 cash.
In addition to the cash prizes, there will also be several raffle items including a new luxury queen size bed donated by Harbor Mattress (Scott Luce) with a $500 value. We also have a signed Eddie George Ohio State Jersey, several signed photographs of Cleveland Indians Alumni, an overnight stay at Holiday Inn French Quarter, gift cards, Cleveland Cavaliers apparel and more.
We are also looking for raffle items and donations, please contact the chamber at 419-898-0479 or chamber@oakharborohio. net if you are interested in purchasing a ticket or donating to the event. Proceeds from the raffle benefit the Free Independence Day Celebration from 5 to 11 p.m. July 3 as well as other community events and activities.
