GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM)- A developer is raffling off a condo in downtown Grand Rapids to help abused and abandoned dogs. Parkland Properties of Michigan teamed up with Mackenzie's Animal Sanctuary for the drawing. Contestants can enter to win a Boardwalk condo or $100,000 in cash. All proceeds from the home raffle will benefit dogs at the sanctuary and keep the safe haven running.
Amanda Parrish is the Marketing & Fundraising Coordinator at Mackenzie's Foundation. Parrish says, "It's a tough economy and people are really pulling through it, but realistically, charitable giving is on the last of people's lists right now of things to do and that's why we want to kind of create something a little more unique and fun and engaging."
Parish continues, "That's why we created this where you know you're helping a great organization by buying a raffle ticket, but ultimately you're going to win a pretty cool prize."
