The TMC Mega Raffle has raised nearly $11 million through 2021.
“The enthusiastic support of the community is overwhelming. As we enter year 10, I am excited to see who this year’s winners will be and even more excited about the impact the TMC Mega Raffle will continue to have on the patient care and programs offered at TMC,” said Kathy Rice, director of the TMC Mega Raffle.
