Each week the person whose ticket is drawn receives $100. Everyone has a chance to win.

Tuesday evenings are busy in Monroe City. Meetings, card parties, and athletic events draw families and friends out of their snug warm homes. The same can be said for loyal supporters of the Monroe City R-1 School Foundation who show up at the Dugout Steak House on Tuesday evening, purchase their raffle tickets, and have a bite to eat with friends. All are actively waiting for the weekly ticket to be drawn. Each week a ticket containing a name and a number is drawn. The number is then matched to the corresponding number from a locked case containing 52 envelopes. Each envelope contains a card from a full deck. If the envelope contains the Ace of Diamonds we have a Jackpot Winner. The Jackpot is now nearly $8,000. The Jackpot winner if present wins 75% of the Jackpot. A non-present winner will receive 60% of the Jackpot.

Each week the person whose ticket is drawn receives $100. Everyone has a chance to win.

Tickets can be purchased on line at our website http//mcr1 foundation.weebly.com. Minimum purchase of $11 (12 tickets) which includes a $1 service charge.
