I read an interesting article this week – Giving Away House Not Always Easy – that included a great deal of information about homes given away in raffles, and how non-profit groups conducting the raffles insure they don’t lose money.
If you’ve had the idea of conducting a raffle as a scholarship fund-raiser or an attendance generator for your next sporting event, you may want to check out this article and the information provided.

As some college athletic programs have been hesitant to host “Faith and Family Night” themed events, The Birmingham Steeldogs will wear Bible-themed jerseys for their Arena Football League game against Louisville on May 5, according to The Winnipeg Sun.
“The name of Bible hero Samson replaces Steeldogs across the chest. Instead of the player’s last name on the back, there’ll be a book of the Bible with the player’s number indicating a chapter and verse of that particular book.
“For example, quarterback Ryan Hawk wears jersey 12, and he’ll still wear 12 on May 5, but the name on his back will change from Hawk to James, referencing the book of James, Chapter 1 Verse 2.
“The jerseys will be auctioned off and proceeds will go to local non-profit ministries.
“Christian recording artists Audio Adrenaline will perform a pre-game concert, and free Bibles will be handed out.”What are your thoughts on the Steeldogs Bible Hero event?
