The Arc of St. Mary/Center of Hope’s annual raffle fundraiser was kicked off Monday. The proceeds raised from this event are for the construction of a new administrative/training facility to be constructed in Centerville. This year’s raffle is the biggest yet and the center is hoping for a huge success. There are 30 prizes and each ticket sells for $2. Tickets can be purchased from Center of Hope participants or by calling the office at 836-9445 between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Pictured on the left is Mark Johnson of the Center of Hope selling tickets to Darin Hebert.
