About the Event

We are doing a reverse $5,000 Grand Prize Drawing at Back the Blue Illinois and Finding HOPE Therapeutic Riding Center Inc.’s Horses 4 Heroes 911 Memorial Gala! We will be giving away $5,000 on September 11, 2021 at the Crowne Plaza in Springfield! Each ticket receives one entry in the drawing for a chance to win all of or part of $5,000. Only 600 tickets will be sold!

A reverse drawing is done backwards… as tickets are drawn out they are eliminated from the drawing until we get down to the final 5 tickets. Those 5 individuals are called up on stage where they have the option to split or not to split the $5,000. Everyone must agree to split….if ONE person says no split we eliminate! If the individual is not present the option selected on the card will be honored if they are in the final 5! Do not have to be present to win! 

Be sure to select your split option during ticket purchase!

All of the proceeds from this drawing go towards scholarships for first responders and their families. Finding HOPE Therapeutic Riding Center Inc. is recognized as a non-profit organization by the IRS; all donations are tax exempt under IRS Code: Section 501(c)(3) Tax Identification Number: 81-4134863 

We sincerely appreciate your ticket purchase.
