We will be selling our popular Platinum Ticket to win a marquis prize everyone will love or the Treasure Chest filled with lots of appealing items. We hope you will join us in supporting Ed’s House!”
The community has once again been so generous with its support with sponsorships and donating items.

“I am proud to say that this event has become a signature event in our area. Every year we are challenged with raising more than a million dollars to support the operation of Ed’s House. As one of our biggest fundraisers of the year, much needed funds are brought forth through this event thanks to the efforts of the Special Events Committee and the tremendous support of the community.
