Winner, winner!

Terry's House Ambassadors help sell raffle tickets - raise $81,000 to support Terry's House Helping Families! 

With your generosity, this year’s raffle helped us to raise $81,000 to support the ongoing mission of Terry’s House and the families who need us most! Thank you! 

This was an extra special year as we hit the milestone 5 year mark of our Terry’s House raffle! Over the years, employees, donors, volunteers and friends have helped us to raise a total of $439,580!!! That’s nearly a whole year of our operating budget, WOW!

Our fellow CMC employees love Terry’s House and they sure showed up in a BIG way for us this year! Close to 60 CMC employees volunteered to become Terry’s House Ambassadors and helped us raise over $20,000 of our total this year. A little friendly competition never hurt, but these folks were most excited to have an opportunity to help support the day to day operations of our home-away-from-home in this fun way.

Little 5 year old Leilani Parra, a very spunky and special past Terry’s House guest, wonderful donors, advocates and friends, Claire and Craig Meredith, and a rock star of a Terry’s House Ambassador and top salesperson, Linette Phillips, helped us celebrate Hospital Week by doing the honors of pulling this year’s winning ticket stubs last Thursday!

They surprised Mary Ann on Mother's day with her winning ticket and informed her she won and to start planning her special trip.
