Vail Valley: Eagle home to be given away in charity raffle
Vail, CO, Colorado
Raffle will give away home in Eagle
A charity raffle will give away a home in Eagle and hopes to raise $1 million for charities in the Vail Valley and elsewhere.
The “Eagle Nest Raffle” started April 10 and runs through Dec. 15 of this year. Tickets are $100 each and no more than 10,000 tickets will be sold. The winner – to be picked Dec. 31 – will receive clear title to a home on a corner lot in the Bluffs neighborhood in Eagle.
Dr. Gary M Weiss and the Florida-based non-profit organization Next Step Institute of Integrative Medicine, Inc. have teamed up with six organizations to support children’s charities from Vail to Haiti.
The home to be raffled has three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, and more than 2,200 square feet of living space with an additional 1,300 square feet of unfinished basement.
Weiss is a neurologist specializing in diseases and conditions affecting the brain, spine, and nervous system, with offices in Eagle, Summit, and Pitkin counties. The goal of the raffle is to support charities whose missions meet the needs of at-risk youth, and/or create or fund innovative programs for developing healthy habits in kids.
Raffle proceeds will help support the Vail Valley Performing Arts Academy, the Eagle Valley Religious Foundation, the National Association for Children of Alcoholics, Holy Name of Jesus, UNICEF (Haiti), and his own non-profit, Action for Children. Ticket buyers can specify which charity they would like their proceeds to support, and all proceeds go to charity.
