On December 14 immediately following the Christmas Festival at Martin Memorial Plaza, a single winning raffle ticket will be pulled and one lucky winner will receive ALL the ornaments on the G’Living Wheaton Tree (Giving + Living Wheaton). New this year, we will also create wreaths valued at $100 each and will pull winner(s) at the same time. But the G’Living Wheaton Tree/Wreath is no ordinary tree filled with ordinary ornaments …
Each ornament on the G’Living Wheaton Tree represents a gift card, certificate or service donated by a Wheaton-area business. It will be one of the most expensive trees our community has ever seen, and one lucky person will be able to win ALL the ornaments!
We are proud to continue this holiday-themed fundraiser to support two local nonprofits that are close to our community’s heart - Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans and People’s Resource Center. Proceeds of the raffle tickets will be donated to these two nonprofits as well as the Downtown Wheaton Association.
Starting November 2, during the 11th Annual Chili Cook-off, our community will be able to purchase raffle tickets. Tickets are $5 for 1 and $20 for 5. Tickets also will be available for purchase at the Downtown Wheaton Association office, at the Wheaton French Market and at participating ticket-selling businesses around town throughout November and early December.
People also will be able to purchase raffle tickets at the Christmas Festival at Martin Memorial Plaza until 2pm on December 14. At 3pm, a single name will be pulled and the winner of the Tree will be revealed. We also will draw a winner for any wreaths we have as well. PLEASE Note: The winner does NOT need to be present to win either the tree or any wreaths.
