What is a meat raffle and how does it work?

When Big Brothers Big Sisters of St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee Counties (BBBS) CEO Stacey Watson-Mesley asked “Want to have a Meat Raffle?” the BBBS Team looked at her in confusion.

“A what?” questioned Taylor Farnsworth, BBBS’ Development Officer while Marketing Coordinator, Megan Rossknecht, began to laugh and asked, “Can you please explain?”

“A Meat Raffle,” replied Watson-Mesley. “is exactly what it sounds like. When I lived in Buffalo there were whole websites dedicated to charity Meat Raffle events. We have wonderful meat and seafood resources here in Florida, so why not have a meat raffle and potentially connect with some great mentors?”

On June 11, 2019 BBBS and Guy's Quality Meats will bring this Buffalo, N.Y. tradition to Fellsmere, F.L. at the Broken Spoke Bar from 6-9 P.M. 

Tickets to attend the Meat Raffle are $10.00 including non-alcoholic beverages and “bar food” snacks. A cash bar is available as well. SEATS ARE LIMITED so purchase them in advance. The event organizers recommend bringing a personal cooler to take winnings home!

A BIG thanks to Guy's Quality Meats, located at 2872 N. U.S. Highway 1, Fort Pierce, FL 34946, for partnering with us to debut the first Meat Raffle in the Treasure Coast.

The meat raffle will consist of three sessions. At the door you will exchange your large bills for "BIG Bucks", which you will then exchange for your Meat Raffle Tickets.

BBBS will also be offering a basket raffle to add to the fun.  Breakdown of sessions consist of:
