Media report on UMaine raffle to win free tuition for a year

WABI (Channel 5) and WMTW (Channel 8 in Portland) reported on the University of Maine Alumni Association’s Annual Tuition Raffle. The winner will receive one year of in-state tuition at UMaine, totaling more than $8,000, media reported. A $5 donation per ticket is suggested. The raffle helps fund the UMaine Alumni Association’s support of student organizations and alumni programs. “It provides an opportunity for students and their families to take a relatively minor philanthropic gesture and turn it into something that has great rewards for them: the opportunity to win a full year of tuition at the University of Maine,” said John Diamond, president of the UMaine Alumni Association. The deadline to enter is May 2, and the drawing will be held May 10. More information is on the UMaine Alumni Association website.
