Quad Cities – If you didn't win any money from the Powerball, the Quad Cities Lodging Association has another opportunity for you to win cash in December before the holidays.

The Quad Cities Lodging Association is having a raffle with the drawing date on 12/12/12. Tickets are just $5.00. First place is $5,000; second place is $2,500; and third place is $1,000.*

Tickets can be purchased in person at The Lodge Hotel, 900 Spruce Hills Drive in Bettendorf, and the Holiday Inn Rock Island, 226 17th Street in Rock Island. Tickets may not be purchased over the phone.

All proceeds go to the Invest in Your Hometown Campaign led by the Quad Cities Lodging Association. This campaign is to raise money for a bid fund to help bring new events, visitors, and money to local businesses. Many large sports tournaments and conventions require financial guarantees in order for a city to be considered as their host destination. It's a common practice for communities to provide financial incentives in exchange for the huge economic impact that they get in return. The average visitor spends $148 per day at local hotels, restaurants, gas stations, attractions, and more - that means tax revenue for our cities and paychecks for our local employees.

The Quad Cities Lodging Association is comprised of the general managers of the local hotels/motels in the area.

*Prize amounts based on 2000 tickets sold. If fewer tickets are sold, prizes will be adjusted accordingly.
