Final NIC "Really BIG Raffle" Open House on Sunday

COEUR D' ALENE, Idaho. - The NIC Foundation will be giving away a newly built "green" home to one lucky person next month.
 
The 17th annual "Really BIG Raffle" is scheduled for July 14th and tickets are still available. On Sunday, the public has the opportunity to go check out the new home from noon to 4. The house is located at 2880 Marceille Drive in Coeur d'Alene.
 
The "Really BIG Raffle" has given away a new home for the past sixteen years. This will be the first year it will be completely energy efficient. Inside it has a hybrid heating and cooling system and energy efficient windows. The floors and countertops are made from recycled materials. The 2147 sq. ft. house has 3 beds and 2 baths worth an estimated $265,000.
 
"We decided to go with a "green" home this year because Energy Star approached us and gave us some ideas on how to be more energy efficient," said Pamela Noah, NIC Foundation development coordinator.
 
Other major raffle prizes include a $20,000 car, a $10,000 boat, a $3500 vacation package, and a $2000 shopping spree.
 
5000 tickets will be sold. This raffle has sold out every year. Tickets cost $100 each. They will be sold at the open house and other community outlets such as Super 1 Foods, Trading Company Stores, Stopck Building Supply, Stein's Family Foods, Lake City Ford, Sandpoint furniture, Riverside Auto, and RDI Heating. 
 
All the money raised goes to pay for the greatest needs at North Idaho College and student scholarships.
