Annual Redbird Raffle Winner To Be Announced On April 28
April 20, 2007
NORMAL, Ill. - Due to the cancellation of this year's football spring game, the announcement of the winners of the annual Redbird Raffle will take place between games of the ISU softball doubleheader on Saturday, April 28, against Southern Illinois beginning at noon at Redbird Softball Complex. All of the raffle tickets have been sold and are no longer available for purchase.
Having a ticket will be beneficial to fans, as the first 200 in attendance at the game with a raffle ticket stub will receive free admission into the game and a coupon for a free hot dog and soda.
Assistant to the Director Larry Morlan knows that the cancellation of the football game has caused some confusion, but hopes that people can show up for the announcement in person.
"We usually announce the winners of the raffle at the spring football game, but with the new turf being installed in Hancock Stadium, we were forced to make other plans," said Morlan. "So, we decided to move the announcement to April 28th. We hope everyone will come out and enjoy the announcement and also get a chance to see our nationally-ranked softball team in action."
Prizes for this year's raffle include a free weekend stay at the Doubletree Hotel (3rd place), round trip airfare to anywhere AirTran Airways travels (2nd place) and an all-expenses paid vacation from Suzi Davis Travel (1st place.)
