With a $100 investment in North Idaho College’s largest annual fundraiser the Really BIG Raffle, ticket holders have the chance to win more than $280,000 in prizes, including a brand new $250,000 home in Coeur d’Alene.

This year’s grand prize house is a spacious four-bedroom, three-bathroom home with more than 2,300 finished square feet of living area. The house features a vaulted living room with fireplace, open kitchen, exercise room and a three-car garage. This home will be built to ENERGY STAR® requirements and outfitted with an energy efficient heat pump. Other special features include granite kitchen counters, rustic wood trim, eco-friendly flooring, tiled baths and a jetted master tub. The house is currently under construction at 6619 Madellaine Drive in the Greenstone Coeur d’Alene Place neighborhood, and is valued at $250,000.

Other prizes include the first prize $20,000 car, second prize $10,000 boat, third prize $3,500 travel package or fourth prize $2,000 shopping spree. Winners may apply the cash value of their prize to the purchase of their choice.

This year marks the 18th year of the Really BIG Raffle, the college’s largest fundraiser of the year, and proceeds are used to fund needs ranging from technology and equipment in the classrooms and laboratories to enhanced support for programs and students. The students enrolled in both the 10-month carpentry program and the two-year carpentry management program gain experience through participation in the construction of the house, under the supervision of instructor Dave McRae. All proceeds from the raffle stay at North Idaho College. Greenstone Homes is the title sponsor for this year’s event.

Tickets are $100 and only 5,000 tickets will be sold before the July 13, 2011 drawing.  For tickets or more information call (208) 769-3271 or visit www.nic.edu/rbr.
