This fall, the HK House of Peers offered you a unique opportunity to win one of three great prizes:
Here's how it worked: The first winner drawn was given an opportunity to select one of the three prizes. The second winner was able to select from the remaining two prizes, and the third winner drawn will receive the remaining prize. (Only one prize per person.)
This raffle benefits NAMI (National Alliance for the Mentally Ill). NAMI is a grass roots organization dedicated to eradicating mental illness and improving the quality of life for those affected by these diseases.
The raffle has ended. Tickets were only $5 ($7.50 CDN or £3) each or 6 tickets for $25 ($37.50 CDN or £15). Entries must have been received by November 18, 2002. The winners were drawn in early December.
NAMI is the nation's leading grassroots organization solely dedicated to improving the lives of persons with severe mental illnesses (major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, obessive-compulsive disorder, and anxiety disorders). Their efforts focus on support to persons with serious mental illnesses and to their families. They advocate non-discriminatory and equitable federal and state policies; increased research funding into the causes, symptoms, and treatments for mental illness; and education to eliminate the pervasive stigma toward severe mental illness. Through advocacy and education, NAMI translates biomedical research advances into effective treatment and services for individuals with serious mental illness.
