A single ticket is $20, three tickets for $50, and 10 for $100 and are on sale now until Aug. 16. There is no limit to the number of raffle tickets that can be purchased and the more tickets you buy, the better opportunity you have of grabbing one of the packages.

The winning tickets will be drawn live this year at the August meeting of the commission which will be held in Kingsport. The seven winners will be drawn for the seven great packages.
