ST. LUCIE COUNTY --The Tractor Supply Company of Fort Pierce is holding a raffle with all proceeds going towards a riding lawn mower for the Humane Society of St. Lucie County's new Port St. Lucie shelter.
For a minimum donation of $2 per ticket, the winning ticket-holder will enjoy a package valued at $200, which includes a 40 gallon digital deer feeder; four 50-pound bags of whole corn; one gallon of molasses; and a 4-pound mineral block trophy rock. Tickets are available at the Tractor Supply Company.
The Tractor Supply Company is offering the shelter 50 percent off a brand-new Cub Cadet riding lawn mower, needed to maintain the HSSLC's 4.25 acres of land on which the shelter's new facility sits on Glades Cut-Off Road in Port St. Lucie. The Tractor Supply Company staff hopes the raffle proceeds will cover the remaining cost.
The doors to the new, state-of-the-art animal shelter will open next month to the public. The current shelter in Fort Pierce will remain open thereafter, allowing the HSSLC to care for even more homeless pets in our community.
On Sept. 14, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Tractor Supply Company will hold an equine awareness event, with pony rides, vendors and more. It's a great opportunity to provide fun for the family, enjoy a day of shopping in the wonderful store and buy a few raffle tickets!
The raffle will end on Sunday, Sept. 22. The Tractor Supply Company is located at 4888 Okeechobee Road in Fort Pierce. For more information on the raffle, contact the store by phone at (772) 468-4972 or Rita Hart, the Humane Society of St. Lucie County's Marketing & Outreach Coordinator, at (772) 801-8564.
