SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ – The Center for Hope Hospice & Palliative Care has rolled out its popular annual Father Charles Hudson Super Bowl Raffle. This is the 22nd year that the non-profit organization is raffling off two tickets to the Super Bowl as the first prize. This year’s game will be played in Minneapolis; the grand prize winner will also receive a flight voucher worth $500 and enjoy a three-night complimentary stay in a Minneapolis-area hotel.
Second prize is a 60-inch LED smart TV and third prize is a $500 VISA gift card. Tickets are $10 each and may be requested online at http://www.cfhh.org/super-bowl-raffle.html, or by calling (908) 889-7780.
All proceeds from the sale of Super Bowl Raffle tickets support the Center’s Charitable Care Program, which provides nearly $3 million a year in free or reduced-cost residential hospice care. The raffle is named after the organization’s visionary co-founder.
The Center for Hope Hospice offers residential hospice and palliative care in Father Hudson House in Elizabeth and Peggy’s House in Scotch Plains; it also provides hospice care in the community for terminally ill patients in Union County and surrounding areas.
“At just $10 each, the raffle tickets are a great way to observe Giving Tuesday and support people in our communities who have the need but lack the means to pay for hospice care,” noted Frank Brady, president of the Center. (Giving Tuesday is the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and falls on Nov. 28.)
