Looking to get your hands on an iPad 2?
What if you could get one for as little as $5? Now is your chance to win an iPad 2 for just a fraction of the retail price while helping to save some friendly critters from an uncertain future.
"Every 10 tickets sold will save one animal from death row," Birgit Sommer, who operates Rainbow Wildlife Rescue in Stephenville, said in regards to the raffle.
Ticket sales started last Friday and will continue through Thursday, May 5 at 8 p.m.
A drawing to determine winners will be held at the Literary Lion, located at 160 E. Washington Street on Friday, May 6, at 5 p.m. Winners will be contacted and must attend a prize ceremony at Santa Fe Taco Company at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 8.
"If the winner is unable to attend the ceremony and doesn't send another individual to collect the prize, it will be given to the runner up," Sommer said.
For individuals looking to participate in the raffle, Sommer will be on hand at the Native and Heirloom Plant Fair at Stephenville Museum on Saturday. Raffle tickets are $5 each or five for $20.
Tickets are also available online at www.rainbowwildlife.com or can be obtained in person at The Literary Lion or Taylor Feed Store.
The grand prize -Apple iPad 2- is engraved with "Rainbow Wildlife Rescue, 1st Prize 2011," and other prizes will also be awarded.
