The West Newton Center for Active Adults is selling a special fundraising raffle ticket tied to the Pennsylvania Lottery’s April 1 evening three-digit drawing.

“I think we can safely say that 2020 made fools of all of us, but winter blew in and with the change in seasons came the change in calendars,” said Paul A Kurzdorfer III, center manager. “Now we sit in 2021 anxiously awaiting spring and those better days ahead.”

Only 200 tickets will be sold at $5 each, he said. Each ticket will include five numbers and the winner will receive $555.

All proceeds benefit the West Newton Center for Active Adults. Tickets are on sale from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays at the center, 103 E. Main St. For more information, call (724) 872-4976.
