Members of Sacred Heart/St. Ann parish in Auburn and Owasco will be selling tickets for the annual Mission From the Heart Raffle during the month of August.
Raffle prizes include gift baskets, a lottery tree and gift certificates for local restaurants. Proceeds from the raffle will support Mission From the Heart, a project through which parishioners raise money to help people in the Dominican Republic community of Monte Plata.
Through this project, parishioners also have visited Monte Plata to deliver the money and develop friendships with the Dominicans. A group of pilgrims was to leave for the Dominican Republic July 25 and return July 31.
Tickets may be purchased for $2 apiece, or three tickets may be purchased for $5. Tickets may be purchased after Masses, from the parish’s travelers to the Dominican Republic or from the parish office by calling 315-252-7271.
