Civil Service Council raffle is Dec. 4

The Southern Illinois University Carbondale Civil Service Council is hosting a holiday raffle on Dec. 4.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Civil Service Education Assistance Program.  The program provides monetary awards to any SIU Carbondale student whose sponsor is a civil service employee at the University.

The drawings will be at 1 p.m. in the Student Center Kaskaskia Room after the Civil Service Council’s holiday luncheon. Tickets are $1 apiece or six for $5.

Among the items available in the raffle is a home entertainment surround speaker system, meals from several area restaurants, and various items from local businesses and departments on campus. A list of some of the available raffle items is in the council’s fall newsletter on the civil service council’s website.
