Posted at April 9, 2019 | By : | Categories : Blog | 0 Comment

New Community Corporation will be selling raffle tickets as part of its first Spring Scholarship Sweepstakes. Supporters of New Community are encouraged to buy the raffle tickets for the chance to win prizes while also helping to bolster the Monsignor William J. Linder Scholarship Fund.

Proceeds from the sale of raffle tickets will benefit the scholarship fund, which NCC Founder Monsignor William J. Linder established to help families send their children to Catholic high schools. The goal is to provide young people a good educational foundation and encourage them to continue on to college.

Children and parents have expressed their gratitude over the years, saying the scholarships allowed for them to attend a school they otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford. The scholarship fund remains in place in Monsignor Linder’s memory to continue to help young people get a head start on pursuing their dreams.

Those who purchase raffle tickets will have the chance to win one of three prizes. First place will be a Sony 60-inch 4K Ultra High Definition TV with HDR and second place will be an Apple iPhone XR. The third place prize will be announced at a later date.

Raffle tickets for the Spring Scholarship Sweepstakes will go on sale beginning April 11. Tickets will be sold for $1 each.

The drawing for the winners will take place during Jazz Night Friday, May 24 at 10 p.m. at St. Joseph Plaza, 233 West Market St., Newark. You do not need to be present at the drawing to win a prize.

Raffle tickets for the Spring Scholarship Sweepstakes will be sold up until the drawing May 24. If you’re interested in purchasing tickets or would like additional information, call 973-623-2800.

No substitution of the offered prizes will be made and no cash will be given out in lieu of prizes. Winners do not need to be present at the drawing.

We at New Community hope you participate in the Spring Scholarship Sweepstakes to support the Monsignor William J. Linder Scholarship Fund and wish you luck in the drawing!
