The Longview ISD Foundation Announces Its Annual Raffle

Each year the Longview ISD Foundation, Inc. holds a raffle in conjunction with its Lamplighter Awards banquet.

Tickets are one (1) for $5.00 or three (3) for $10.00.  When buying a ticket, one can check the item he or she hopes to win, spreading tickets among the items or putting all tickets on one item.
The Foundation will hold four separate drawings on Thursday, April 13, 2023, at 6:30 PM at the 23rd annual Lamplighter Awards banquet at Pinecrest Country Club.  Winners need not be present to win.

To purchase raffle tickets, contact Kay Ray, Foundation director, at 903-452-7015 or or purchase from any Foundation board member.  Raffle tickets are also available for purchase from Kacy Swaim in the Longview ISD Community Relations Department at the LISD Education Support Center, 1301 E. Young Street, and at Henry and Moore Jewelry in the shopping center adjacent to Hobby Lobby on Loop 281.

To purchase raffle tickets, buyers may also text Kay Ray or email her exactly which items to check on their raffle tickets and then pay by Venmo at Gloria Kay Ray@longviewisdfoundation or Kay Ray@besmart1, both of which will legally and securely transfer money to the Foundation’s checking account.
