There will be both a silent auction and a live auction.

This year’s raffle includes two tickets to the Oklahoma City Thunder versus Miami Heat game on Friday, March 23, a one-night stay at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Bricktown and a $100 gift card to Toby Keith’s restaurant, I Love This Bar & Grill. American Exchange Bank has graciously supported the raffle.

Fundraiser ticket cost includes a $25 donation.  Local businesses with tickets available include First Family Federal Credit Union, American Exchange Bank, First National Bank, Burnett’s Furniture, Henryetta Dental Clinic and the Henryetta Free-Lance.

“The more money we raise, the more we can get done for the betterment for the kids and town and education for Henryetta,” said James McCullough, HEF President.

Funds raised benefit teacher grants for special educational events. Any funds not used for those grants go toward HEF’s cultural program, McCullough said.

Henryetta High School’s National Honor Society students will help serve and prepare during the event.

Everyone is encouraged to come and invest in the lives of students in Henryetta and the future of the community.
