Give Gathering Raffle Incentive

You can help NEPA Gives organizations win incentives just by showing up for the Give Gathering! Every person who visits the Hilton during our Give Gathering will receive a complimentary raffle ticket. Additional raffle tickets will be given with food/beverage purchases. At the top of every hour from 4-8 pm, a raffle number will be pulled and the winner has an opportunity to choose one participating organization to be awarded $500! If the organization the winner chooses has a table at the Give Gathering’s Nonprofit Hub, the prize amount doubles to $1,000! The more friends you have at the Give Gathering, the higher likelihood of you receiving these bonus prizes! This is only one of many incentives available to nonprofit organizations. Check out the hundreds of thousands of dollars in matching funds, prizes, and incentives raised for 225+ participating nonprofits!
