Misericordia Strong Raffles 

July 2021

Dear Friend,

On behalf of Sister Rosemary and the entire Misericordia family, we pray that you and your families continue to be safe and well. Normally at this time of year we would be writing to invite you to our annual Misericordia Family Fest. But like 2020, 2021 is very different as we begin to emerge from the COVID-19 restrictions and yet continue to ensure the health and safety of our residents and staff.

In the interest of keeping our entire Misericordia family safe, we have made the difficult decision of postponing this year’s in-person Family Fest once again. However, we still need your support to help Keep Misericordia Strong! In keeping with the traditions set by our dear friend Pauline Greco, the “Queen of Raffles,” over 40 years ago, we invite you to take part once again in our annual Cash and Car Raffle that is now part of our Keep Misericordia Strong Campaign.

We will be offering 3,000 Cash Raffle tickets for $100 each and a chance for 25 individuals to win cash prizes with the grand prize being $50,000! Car raffle tickets will be available for $50 each or 3 for $100 for the opportunity to win a 2021 Kia Forte, generously donated by Andy Francis of Evergreen Kia! The winners will be drawn on September 15, 2021, during a virtual drawing. When we receive your order, we will email you your ticket number(s) upon request. If you would like a copy of your ticket, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We strongly encourage you to purchase your ticket(s) online at www.misericordia.com or download a mail in form.

This year marks the 100th Anniversary of Misericordia. Since the 1950s, Misericordia has been dedicated to helping persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are most grateful for your past support and truly rely on you as we begin our next century. We look forward to the time when we can gather together in celebration of Misericordia’s annual Family Fest here on our campus. Thank you most sincerely for your continuous belief in our mission. We are blessed to call you friends and wish each of you good health, happiness and hope for the future.

With grateful hearts,

Lois Gates, Assistant Executive Director

The Greco Family and Friends Committee
