Washington’s Lottery offers tickets to benefit veterans

November 13, 2012

By Staff

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 Veterans Raffle. Proceeds from ticket sales benefit service members and military families.

Tickets for the Veterans Raffle, on sale through Jan. 1, can be purchased at more than 3,700 lottery retailers statewide for $10.

The program raised more than $247,000 last year for the Veterans Innovations Program.

Participants can also go to www.walottery.com/raffle to learn more about the program and support the cause.
