Each raffle prize is worth at least $50 in honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Additional drawings will be held Aug. 8 and Sept. 15, every 50 days from the start of the program.
The education- and activity-based event is intended to encourage everyone to find ways to help the environment.
Will County Executive Denise Winfrey reminds those who haven’t yet joined the fun that they still can.
“Completion of each activity earns a point," Winfrey said in the event's news release. After earning 15 points, participants are entered into the raffle drawings."
