Give local, support local raffle

Give Local. Support Local. 

People can do both with United Way of Central Kansas’ newest raffle drawing. 

For $10 per ticket or six for $50, participants can be entered to win more than $1,700 in gift cards to businesses in Barton and Pawnee counties. 

Thirty-five local businesses donated gift cards to UWCK for the prizes. These businesses span the area from Hoisington and Ellinwood to Larned and Great Bend.

“We are grateful to each of these businesses who donated to this raffle,” said Charell Owings, executive director UWCK. “We are optimistic that community members will see the value in purchasing tickets. Not only are they getting a chance to win, but they are also supporting local businesses and UWCK. Funds raised with this raffle will support our Community Impact Work such as Laundry Love, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, Box of Love, and Reality U.”

Those interested in purchasing tickets can call the UWCK office at 620-792-2403, stop by the office at 1125 Williams St. or reach out to a UWCK board member. Tickets may be purchased online at
