The Department of New Jersey Marine Corps League ran a state wide 50/50 where all detachments were challenged to sell at least 100 raffle tickets. The Hunterdon County Bulldogs Detachment 927 sold over half their tickets and took a vote of their membership to buy the rest of the tickets for the detachment. The raffle was held at the Department’s banquet on June 15, 2019 where they drew for three prizes. 1st ticket won 70%, 2nd 20% and 3rd received 10% of the pot.
The Hunterdon County Bulldogs Commandant Chris Soldano was shocked and thrilled when the first prize ticket was pulled and the Bulldogs name was announced the winner of over $4,700 first prize. All proceeds from the winnings will go into the Detachment’s fund to support their membership events and programs.
