Construct Raffles E-bike to Support Essential Workers
Construct has launched a new online raffle featuring the grand prize of a Specialized Turbo Como 3.0 E-bike, valued at $3,000. Proceeds from the raffle will raise money for essential workers in the southern Berkshires who are struggling to find housing or remain in their homes.
“This raffle is important because high housing costs and a shortage of affordable housing are uprooting our local workforce,” said Executive Director Jane Ralph. “As the issue of housing insecurity grows each day in our community, Construct works harder to meet the need.”
Entries begin at $20, with the higher $50 and $100 levels increasing a participant’s chances of winning. The raffle drawing will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 6 pm and will stream live on Construct’s Facebook page. You can purchase raffle entries by going here or link to the raffle through Construct’s website:. Or text 'EBIKE' to 855-202-2100 to have a direct link sent to you. The winner does not need to be viewing the Sept. 30th drawing and will be notified by email that evening. Berkshire Bike and Board have generously contributed towards the eco-friendly grand prize and Lee Bank is the community sponsor.
