MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The raffle drawings to support U.P. residents living with disabilities start tomorrow.

Superior Alliance for Independent Living is holding a raffle instead of its chocolate festival this year.

Proceeds benefit various recreational programs.

There are 16 prizes in the raffle.

The chocolate festival has changed, but according to the SAIL executive director, the goal has not.

“We host it so that people in the community that live with a disability are able to get out into the community, be part of a community event,” explains Sarah Peurakoski. “We want to also keep people aware that we’re here and that we’re available to help for any service they might need or any type of recreation event that they might want to participate in.”

Raffle tickets can be purchased until Thursday at SAIL’s office on Wright Street in Marquette.

Winners will be drawn at noon tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday.
