    Car or Cash Raffle for Children’s Museum Ends in One Week
     
    (Dover, NH – May 16, 2017)  The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire’s annual Car or Cash Raffle is ending in one week. On Tuesday, May 23 at 6:15pm at Port City Nissan, one lucky winner will be announced and that person can choose between a 2017 Midnight Edition Nissan Maxima valued at $40,695 or $20,000 cash.
     
    The Children’s Museum is offering one more incentive for people to join them at the “winner reveal” event on May 23rd in Portsmouth. “Everyone who comes and has purchased, or even purchases that evening, a raffle ticket will be automatically entered to win ONE more ticket right before we announce the winner,” shared Jane Bard, CMNH President. “So just by coming [on May 23] you might double your chances of going home a little wealthier.”
     
    The event will be hosted by Z107 DJ Jadd Naamani who will also be giving away concert tickets. The event is family friendly and goes from 5:30-6:30pm. Tickets can be purchased online through the museum’s website until 2pm on May 23: https://www.childrens-museum.org/things-to-do/events/car-raffleOtherwise tickets can be purchased in person at the event at Port City Nissan until 6pm.
     
    This raffle is a fundraiser to support the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire and according to CMNH President Jane Bard, it’s one that they rely on. “We have done this raffle for the last 5 years, and because of all the ticket sales by families and individuals who believe in what we do here, we’re able to continue to offer unique and exciting programming.” The museum only sells 775 tickets, and as of this release has only sold less than 500. “So that means your odds of winning are better than ever,” laughs Jane. “But seriously, the money that we raise from this and other fundraisers like it, allows us to continue to be able to provide subsidized museum visits for schools and families in challenging circumstances.
     
    Tickets can be purchased online via the Museum’s website: www.childrens-museum.org or by calling 603-742-2002 during regular business hours.
     
    The museum would like to thank its sponsors Z107, Rock 101, 96.7 News Radio, Manchester Boston Regional Airport and Port City Nissan.
     
    Purchasers of car or cash raffle tickets must be 18 years or older, possess a valid driver’s license and provide proof of insurance.
