DOTHAN, Ala (WTVY) -- Wiregrass United Way is offering up almost a $2,000 value prize on New Year’s Eve to help reach its fundraising goal.

They are selling raffle tickets for $10. One lucky winner will get 19 gift cards to local restaurants worth $100 each.

They hope to raise $2,870,000.

"Our fundraising is a little behind this year after Hurricane Michael. So we are hoping that this will give us the boost to put us over the goal when the campaign finishes," said Wiregrass United Way CEO Walter Hill.

The Wiregrass Foundation will donate $400,000 if they meet that goal.

You can purchase tickets until the drawing on New Year ’s Eve at 2:30 p.m. by calling the office at (334) 792-9661.
