Two mini-mansions, playhouses made especially for children, will be given away at the Logan County Fairs in Paris and Booneville in drawings to be held in August and September.
Tickets to have a chance at winning one of the playhouses are now on sale. One ticket is $5. Five tickets can be purchased for $20 and 30 tickets are $100.
The fundraiser supports the Court Appointed Special Advocate program for the 15th Judicial District, which includes Logan County, a non-profit charitable organization. CASA volunteer advocates are trained and appointed to actual cases of child abuse or neglect. The advocates assist in making the needs of children known to the juvenile court.
