Supports Gordon Hall
The Gordon Hall Raffle offers a Grand Prize of $10,000, a $1,000 2nd prize, and a $500 3rd prize. Raffle tickets sell for $10 each or 5 tickets for $40. The raffle drawing will take place at the Gazebo in Dexter at 7:00 PM on Saturday, August 9, 2014. All proceeds from this raffle will support Gordon Hall.
Only 4000 raffle tickets were printed, so your chances of winning are great! To purchase raffle tickets, look for Dexter Area Historical Society and Museum (DAHSM) volunteers in their green Gordon Hall t-shirts around town, find the DAHSM booth at Dexter Daze, or ask at several businesses in Dexter.
DAHSM is dedicated to preserving the history of the Dexter area. Gordon Hall is a stately Greek Revival mansion standing on 67 acres just west of Dexter and was built in 1841 by Judge Samuel Dexter, the founder of the village. It was donated to the University of Michigan in 1950 and was purchased by the DAHSM in 2005 to be restored to historical accuracy.
Less than $200,000 remains to be paid from the original $1.5 million purchase price in 2005. The DAHSM has been working diligently to pay off the mortgage and begin restoration. The former Dexter Kiwanis raffle became the DAHSM raffle in 2013. (DAHSM is a 501c3 organization operating the raffle with State of Michigan Raffle License #R-20673)
