Get tickets now for Naperville Responds’ reverse raffle Nov. 13


The Annual Cheers For Veterans fundraiser in support of Naperville Responds For Veterans (NRFV) will begin virtually at 6PM Fri., Nov. 13, at the Judd Kendall VFW 3873.

The lucky date is set for all-American flag waving and fundraising to assist Veterans and their families in need with home repairs and renovations. The event associated annually around Veterans Day to celebrate our Veterans and military will feature the first-ever Cheers For Veterans Reverse Raffle.

Just what’s a “reverse raffle”?

Organizers explained that a reverse raffle is a raffle where the grand prize comes at the end. The last ticket drawn instead of the first is the big winner and in the case of the NRFV Reverse Raffle, “Cheers” will go all around when the big winner receives $10,000.

The point of the reverse raffle is to hold everyone’s attention until the end, while showcasing the important work for Veterans accomplished since 2010 and awarding many prizes along the way.

For instance, in addition to the big winnings for the 500th selection and final drawing, prizes will be awarded for the first pulled (a TV), as well as cash prizes for the 100th, 250th, 300th, 350th, 400th, 450th, 498th and 499th. And in between numbers, the drawing will include random prizes that pop-up for more entertainment.

In addition, an online silent auction will feature great items for holiday gifts, including an overnight stay with two days of golf at Rich Harvest Farms valued at $7,000.


Since early this year, Naperville Responds has been among many nonprofit services that aim to make a difference to fulfill unmet needs identified by local residents, needs that are just as important to meet during a pandemic.

Raffle tickets are $100 each and only 500 will be sold. Raffle ticket holders need not be present to win. Purchase raffle tickets at www.napervilleresponds.org/raffle.

The virtual fundraiser will be broadcast via Zoom, “Live from the Judd Kendall VFW Post!” added Dan Jurjovec, President of Naperville Responds.

“Join us for a fun evening and a toast,” Jurjovec said. “Simply pour your favorite beverage and be ready for Cheers. This year’s fundraiser will be different, but our mission remains the same as we give thanks to Veterans.”
