Middletown High School boosters raffling house to raise athletic funding
Middletown High School's athletic boosters are trying to raise money to update its lacking athletic facilities, and to do so, they're giving a house away.
Literally. A house.
Supporters have the chance to buy a $100 raffle ticket in their "Dream Home Raffle," according to their website. The winner of the raffle - provided that the boosters sell 6,000 tickets, according to WTOP - will get a 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home in Middletown.
The 3,224-square-foot colonial has a two-car garage, hardwood floor, a covered porch and a rear wood deck.
Keith Powell, the president of the Middletown High School Sports Club, told WTOP that they've already sold more than 3,700 tickets with a deadline of Sept. 13 to get to 6,000.
The home has a value of $475,000.
