LifeStream Extends Deadline to Buy Dream Raffle Tickets

 LifeStream Blood Bank is extending the deadline to buy Dream Raffle tickets by 10 days with a goal of reaching the minimum number of tickets that need to be sold to award the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport or $20,000 cash.
“The original deadline was November 30th. We believe the new December 10th deadline
will give more people, including snowbirds who are returning to the area to nest for the season,
the chance to buy tickets,” said Rick Axelrod, MD, LifeStream’s president/CEO and medical
director. “We’re optimistic that the extra days will help us reach the 3,500 tickets threshold
necessary to award the Bronco Sport or $20,000.” If less than 3,500 tickets are sold, the grand
prize will be $10,000.

Tickets are $25 each. For every four tickets sold in a single $100 transaction, buyers
receive a bonus entry which gives them an extra chance to win all Dream Raffle prizes.

Major prizes include a flight on a P51 Mustang WWII plane; a 4day, 3night New Mexico winter
getaway with ski package at a Red River cabin; a 2night stay and dinner for two at Westin
Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa; an entertainment system that includes a Samsung 65” 4K
Crystal UHD TV and sound bar system; and a NEXGRILL Deluxe sixburner gas grill, Omaha
Steaks and accessories.

The bonus entry is also placed into a separate drawing for a fivecarat diamond bracelet
worth $7,000. “The odds of winning the diamond bracelet are currently 1 in 600,” said Axelrod.

Tickets may be purchased by calling 9093866929 from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Monday through Friday. All prizes will be awarded through a random drawing that will be held
on December 15, 2021. A maximum of 5,000 tickets are available for sale. Details about all
prizes, payment options, and raffle rules may be found at
www.LStream.org/raffle.

Dream Raffle proceeds will help LifeStream cover the cost of two new bloodmobiles.
“These bloodmobiles will ensure that our team remains ‘on the road’ in full force to collect blood
products to assist surgical and cancer patients, accident and trauma victims, and even newborn
babies,” said Axelrod.

sponsored by Palm Springs Motors, El Paseo Jewelers, KESQ News Channel 3, The Desert
Sun | Local iQ, KOLA 99.9, Contour Dermatology, Sam’s Club and Walmart.
