Big Brothers Big Sisters is giving you the chance to win $10,000.

The local organization is selling tickets at $100 each for a chance to win $10,000. The drawing will be at their Buckeye Pep Rally fundraiser at the Eagle Sticks Golf Course November 19th.

"The money raised from the fundraising events are used to recruit children and volunteers, to screen those volunteers, and do background checks, interviews, driving record checks, and also then we match those children with a big. There’s a professional system involved and a process involved thats what makes Big Brothers Big Sisters a premiere mentor organization in the country," Mollie Crooks Executive Director said.

Crooks said there are only 300 tickets available.

"If we don’t sell at least 200 tickets then it turns in to a 50/50 split drawing so you still have pretty good odds for some big dollars," Crooks said.

The money raised at the event will help more children in the community. For tickets contact the Big Brothers Big Sisters office.
