Leprechaun Limbo’s Part

Leprechaun Limbo gave to Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton and Franklin Counties a few different ways. First, our goal was to actively promote their facilities and programs and help spread the word. During the Leprechaun Limbo, staff, volunteers, and children were on-site selling raffle tickets. Each raffle ticket cost $1. Attendees purchased as many tickets as they liked to try to win one of our raffle baskets. Contents of the baskets were posted the night of the event. 100% of the proceeds from raffle tickets sales went to Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton and Franklin Counties, a local 501(c)3 organization.

VIP ticket sales provided additional dollars, as did face painting, and Photoboxx donations. There was also an option to add a donation at the time of ticket purchase.
