Several years ago a new fundraiser was introduced by the Dracut Scholarship Foundation, Inc. Dollars for Scholars. The fundraiser continues and we will once again be raffling off $10,000. The minimum prize is $10,000 (with at least 150 tickets sold).  You could purchase a ticket on your own or you can share a ticket amongst family, friends or co-workers.  For example, if 10 people go in on a ticket at $10.00 each then they also share the prize each receiving $1,000.  The ticket may be divided in any manner you wish. The winning ticket is drawn during the live broadcast of the final night of our Annual Telethon.

This year's telethon is March 22-24, 2017.
