Each year, the Moms and Dads Associations at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign coordinate a scholarship drawing. As of 2015, in order for more people to be eligible to win, the raffle is now a 50/50 split with one person winning half of the pot as cash. The remaining funds will go to student scholarships as the monies raised allows. Cash award is based on the number of tickets sold. Raffle tickets are sold from Moms Weekend in April through Dads Weekend in November.
Cost: 1 ticket for $10.00 or 6 tickets for $50.00
All proceeds benefit Moms and Dads Associations' Projects and Scholarships and are strictly
used to benefit students and families at the University of Illinois.
The drawing was held at the Illini Union at 12:00 Noon on Sunday, November 3, 2019. Congratulations to Jean-Pierre Wolfe from Naperville, IL (pictured above with the Moms Association Raffle Chair, Xiaohong Li)! He won $3,265.00!
