The Dover, NH, Chamber Wants to Give You $10,000
I get that everyone is talking about winning millions right now because of Mega Millions and Powerball. Actually, they're talking about winning BILLIONS at this point. But think about it (not to be pessimistic at all, because any one of us that are playing the lottery right now can win), we're up against the entire COUNTRY trying to win this money.
Know what has much better odds? Trying to score $10,000 from the Dover Chamber of Commerce in New Hampshire.
According to their Instagram page, the Dover Chamber just announced their 19th annual Sweepstakes & Auction, which serves as a fundraiser for the Dover Chamber of course, but also could line your pockets with a sweet $10K!
This was actually supposed to be the 20th annual "Sweeps" (as the Dover Chamber likes to call it), but I'm not sure if you realized we've had a pandemic going on for about a year now -- because of that, last year was the first in almost two decades that "Sweeps" wasn't able to happen.
This year's "Sweeps," like almost every other event ever in the past year, will be done virtually. Tickets are $50 each and only 300 will be sold. Yeah, so unlike your .0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001% chance you have to win over a billion dollars between both lottery jackpots, you have a 1 in 300 chance of winning $10,000 with "Sweeps." Multiple tickets can be purchased by the same person, too, so obviously that ups your chances to take it home.
The grand prize winner will be drawn on Wednesday, March 17. Yup, St. Paddy's Day -- so here's hoping to you (or I -- your boy over here could use $10,000, too!) having the Luck of the Irish and scoring that $10K. If you don't, though, you could still become a winner, since raffles and a silent auction will also be happening with the Sweepstakes & Auction event.
Tickets for "Sweeps" are on sale right now on the Dover Chamber website. Remember, no more than 300 tickets will be sold, and where people are literally spending hundreds of dollars at a whack to try and score over a billion with a country-wide lottery, these 300 tickets will go quickly at only $50 each.
Good luck! Erin Go Bragh and things!
