PALM CITY, Fla. -
Even with the recent rebound in the housing market, there are still some good deals to be had.
How about this, 10-dollars for the chance to win a brand new home?
YMCA of the Treasure Coast
is a home away from home for thousands of all ages, and once again, the organization wants to help more people enjoy their home, by giving away a brand new home.
The Y's Easter House is a 3 bedroom 2 bath home in the Murano development in Palm City. A $10 raffle ticket gives you the chance to win a $230-thousand dollar property.
Not in the market for a home? The winner can also choose a 125-thousand dollar cash payout.
"Pay off the mortgage for the house you already own or put it in your retirement account or fill up your gas tank right now," laughed Robin Sutherland with the YMCA Easter House.
If you buy three tickets, you're entered into the second prize drawing of a Norwegian Cruise vacation.
What started as a five-year fundraising effort, the Easter House is now in its 26th year.
All of the proceeds go to the Y's scholarship fund which helps families pay for the many programs offered.
In fact, a third of all the preschool families are aided by scholarship funds.
"If you buy six tickets, you're teaching a child how to swim. If you buy three tickets, that's a tumbler class for a toddler," said Sutherland.
The Easter House is open for tours every day from 10:30am-5:30pm. The drawing is March 28th and right now they're short about 200-thousand dollars in ticket sales so they really need a good last push.
