Deadline approaching for Health and Wealth Raffle

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - The deadline is fast-approaching to try your luck in the Health and Wealth Raffle.

You can win everything from smaller prizes, like a TV or a digital picture frame, to huge prizes, like a million dollars. There are more than  2,400 prizes available. 

The raffle not only features great prizes, but also benefits Barrow Neurological Institute and St. Joseph's Hospital. Proceeds from the Raffle go directly to the hospitals.

On Wednesday's Good Morning Arizona, Tara Hitchcock joined us to fill us in on what its all about. Tara, former host of Good Morning Arizona, is now an advocate for Barrow and St. Joseph's. She has a very personal connection to the cause.

When Tara's stepson Dylan was 16, he suffered stroke-like symptoms. It turned out that he had suffered an arteriovenous malformation (AVM) rupture on one side of his brain. Dylan is now doing well.

"You have no idea how important this thing is until you go through it yourself," says Hitchcock. 

Single tickets for the Health & Wealth Raffle cost $100.  You can find out more information online.

The deadline to buy tickets is May 14.
