Are you looking for a fun way to support Aspire of WNY? Well, do we have one for you!

Aspire of WNY’s Helping Hands program, which assists families/individuals with disabilities in emergencies, is putting on its annual Chicken BBQ, and this year, they have a basket raffle AND 50/50. We’re encouraging anyone in Chautauqua County to let us cook you dinner on May 9 while you support a great cause. Dinners are $15 each. Raffle tickets are $10 for 1 sheet, $25 for 3 sheets, and special basket items are $5/ticket.

Special thanks to our EGG-cellent sponsors: Ecklof Bakery & Deli and Doggy Stylez Dog Grooming

If you buy physical raffle tickets online, you will receive an email before the raffle to indicate where you would like us to put your tickets.
