Hope Association to hold fundraising raffle

RUMFORD — For the first time since the Hope Association Ride-In’s inauguration, there will be no community gathering due to COVID-19, but the association will still hold a raffle. Tickets are being sold through Monday, Feb. 1, and the drawing will be held Friday, Feb. 5.

The ride-in began in 1974 with the goal of raising funds to help build the association’s first residential home to support adults with developmental disabilities and to purchase the first activity center on Waldo Street. Over the years, due to ongoing support from the western Maine communities, the ride-in generated funds to help build four additional residential homes, expand the day programs, purchase special lift equipped vans and more services.

Prizes include cash of $200, $100 and $25, gift certificates and gift baskets. Visit for a complete list and details. Tickets can be purchased at the What Not Shop, 85 Lincoln Ave., or online.
