Chelsea Area Chamber of Commerce – 40|30|30 Raffle

The Chelsea Area Chamber of Commerce holds a yearly raffle fundraiser. This year we decided to use this platform to raise money for a great cause as well as our organization.

The demand for Skilled and Trade workers continues to climb. Not every Chelsea student fits the 4 Year College mold. Students interested in technical or trade programs do not have the same opportunities for scholarships or financial assistance. And in the spirit of helping those students that fit outside the mold – we would like to help support them with a Trade/Technical Program Scholarship. Here’s how this works:

  • 40% of all the Ticket Proceeds will go to the Raffle Winner
  • 30% of all the Ticket Proceeds will go to Chelsea High School to provide 1 or more scholarships for outstanding student(s) interested in a technical or trade program
  • 30%  of all the Ticket Proceeds will go to the CACC

Tickets are $30 each and the Drawing will be held December 10, 2021 at 5:30pm

Palmer Auto Service | 222 S Main St. Chelsea, MI  48118

Tickets are available through the Chelsea Area Chamber of Commerce | License # R59739
