Give for Kids is a collaboration led by child advocate Natasha Waters, in partnership with the Wessington Springs community and the Abbott House, to help raise awareness. Every ticket purchased during the raffle will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000. The Give for Kids raffle ended at midnight on November 30.
