WHAT: The Coliseum Square Association (‘CSA’) is looking to sell 200 raffle tickets at $105 each, ultimately raising enough money to purchase and install 35-40 security cameras throughout the Lower Garden District (‘LGD’).
WHY: This initiative is in response to the frustration expressed by many LGD residents regarding the consistent crime in the area. The cameras are to be monitored by Project NOLA, a local, non-profit networked crime camera system. With this initiative, the CSA hopes to reduce crime in the area, ultimately improving the safety and quality of life in the LGD.
GRAND PRIZE: The raffle's grand prize is $10,000! So, by purchasing a ticket for $105, you have a 1/200 chance of turning $105 into $10,000!
WHEN: Raffle ends September 30th* at 12pm CST. The lucky winner will then be randomly selected and notified. The security cameras will be strategically placed throughout the LGD after the raffle ends.
*If tickets sell faster than anticipated, the raffle’s grand prize drawing may be held earlier than noted. If this situation occurs, ticket holders will be notified via email.
