The 18th Annual IDEAL Gala honoring advocates for social justice is coming on Monday, February 27, and Gala raffle ticket sales are open now! Each $100 raffle ticket gives the buyer a chance to win one of three fabulous prizes described below.

Prize Drawing for Student Raffle Sellers
Every raffle ticket purchaser is invited to enter the name of an IDEAL student in a lottery drawing, where two students can win an amazing prize. Each time a raffle ticket is purchased and a student’s name is entered, they have a chance to win an Apple Watch or an Oculus Quest Virtual Reality Headset. The more a student sells, the more chances they have to win! There are no paper tickets for the raffle; all sales are via this link
