The Lake Fenton Music Boosters present the second annual Tin Can Raffle to benefit the Lake Fenton Community Schools Music Program on Dec. 4 and 5. Tin Can Raffle 2015 is a unique fundraising event where local businesses can provide a product or service to donate and guests place tickets that they purchase into a tin can in hopes to win that prize. It is similar to a silent auction, however, the tickets they place within the cans vary in value based upon the suggested value of the prize. The winners will be randomly selected during the afternoon of Dec. 5. For more information, visit www.LFTinCanRaffle.com.
