Washington’s Lottery offers tickets to benefit veterans
September 27, 2011
Through a partnership between the state Department of Veterans Affairs and Washington’s Lottery, lotto players can help veterans by purchasing a ticket.
Funding for the Veterans Innovations Program to aid service members returning from Afghanistan and Iraq comes from The Hometown Heroes Raffle. Proceeds from ticket sales benefit service members and military families.
Tickets for The Hometown Heroes Raffle can be purchased at more than 3,900 lottery retailers statewide for $10. Tickets remain sale through Nov. 10, and the drawing is scheduled for Nov. 11, Veterans Day.
Participants can also go to www.facebook.com/walottery to share reasons why they support the cause.
