At 7:30 p.m. there will be a drawing for the Blake’s Buddies Diamond Raffle. The winner will have a chance to choose between two diamonds — a 1-karat round diamond or a princess cut diamond. Tickets are on sale for $20 and can be purchased at J.C Grant Co.
“All proceeds from the raffle will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation,” said Justin Jones of J.C Grant Co.
Although this is the first time for the diamond raffle, it is not the first time the business has raised money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
“We’ve been doing fundraisers since 2008,” said Jones. “We’re always looking for new ways to raise money and we thought this raffle would be something different to try, plus we thought it’ll be good idea to partner with First Friday for the raffle.”
