Reeves raffle tickets on sale to aid Upper Yadkin Valley Habitat for Humanity

Even before opening the doors, the Reeves Theater helped Habitat with a donation that is allowing others to keep the generosity going.

Raffle tickets are on sale at the Upper Yadkin Valley Habitat for Humanity ReStore at 102 E. Market St. in Elkin for either four front row tickets to the New Year’s Eve show or box ticket seats plus up to $100 towards the evening’s tab at the bar or café.

Originally these tickets were part of a prize donated to a previous Habitat fundraiser.

“Debbie Carson of the Reeves Theater donated the prize to the Yadkin Valley and Yadkinville Rotary Clubs’ annual golf tournament in support of Habitat,” said Habitat Executive Director Claire Sellars.

“The prize was won by Warren Bates of Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital, who in turn donated it to Habitat to raffle as a fundraiser,” she said.

It is such generosity that makes the local Habitat affiliate able to help families with the variety of programs it offers, including budget maintenance and the building of homes.

“We are grateful to Debbie and Warren for their generosity and continued support to Habitat’s homeownership program,” said Sellars. “Partnerships such as this not only build houses, but a brighter future for local families and a stronger community for us all.”

Community members who would like to be a part of this continued giving can purchase raffle tickets for $3 each or four for $10 at the Restore Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the drawing to take place at 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 23.
