Dayton, Ohio – Over $16,000 was raised for The Dayton Foodbank after the Dayton Dragons Foundation and the Dayton Air Credit Union launched a special holiday online 50/50 raffle.
The raffle was live between November 30 and December 10, resulting in a total of $32,700 raised – with one half going to The Dayton Foodbank and the other half to the 50/50 winner, a man from Springboro.
“There are thousands of other non-profits doing really great work, so we would like to thank the Dragons and Day Air Credit Union for selecting The Dayton Foodbank,” noted Foodbank CEO Michelle Riley. “The money raised will help provide over 98,000 meals for those in need this holiday season.”
“Each season, we host 50/50 raffles inside Day Air Ballpark and are able to support various causes in our community through the Dragons Foundation” said Dragons President, Robert Murphy. “For the second time this year, we’re excited to host an online sales effort to benefit a great local charity The Dayton Foodbank. We are also very pleased to partner with Day Air Credit Union in making this happen. We feel it’s a wonderful way to help those in need during the holiday season.”
Day Air Credit Union Director of Marketing Joe Eckley added, “It was amazing watching the dollars raised add up over the course of this campaign, as the Dayton community rallied together for a great cause.”
