Time running out to purchase Bay Days fireworks raffle tickets

Time is running out to purchase raffle tickets to help pay for the Bay Days fireworks this year.

Raffle tickets for a one-year membership in the Freedom Boat Club will only be sold until Memorial Day, when the winning ticket will be drawn.

The winning ticket for the 10-game Cleveland Cavaliers package will be drawn July 4.

One half of the Fourth of July fireworks celebration is now privately funded, so volunteers are working to raise money to make sure the celebration goes off with a bang.

The winner of the Freedom Boat Club prize will have unlimited use of a fleet of boats at all club locations, which includes the Rocky River, Sandusky, Catawba and elsewhere. The club takes care of all maintenance costs, except fuel. For details visit freedomboatclub.com.

The Cavs package includes tickets to 10 select games of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016/2017 season, plus membership in the Wine and Gold United, which confers numerous other benefits outside Cavaliers tickets, such as discounts on Monsters and Gladiators tickets and events. Tickets are in Sec. 227, Row 13, Seats 17 and 18, on the aisle and re-sellable. The winner will also receive a “swag bag” of Cavaliers merchandise.

Raffle tickets for both prizes are $25 each or five for $100. They are on sale by calling 216-386-5997 or emailing info@bayfireworks.org.

New T-shirts with a compass design are available in both long and short sleeve. The short-sleeve shirts are $15; long sleeve $20. The city also is offering Bay Village-logo wine glasses for $8 each or two for $15; nice tote bags for $15 and car magnets for $3.
