The Euro 2008 Raffle offers 30 prizes, or a 1:10 chance to win. The Grand Prize is a 4-day, 3-night trip for two to Switzerland, with 2 tickets to a Euro 2008 quarterfinal match that is highly in demand. Second prize is two premium season tickets for DC United. There are 28 third prizes: $25 gift certificates to Modell's Sporting Goods.

Further information is available on the Euro 2008 Raffle website at http://www.annandalerotary.org or at 703-528-6552.

The Annandale Rotary Foundation's Euro 2008 Raffle benefits, among others, Rotary International's PolioPlus Program, an initiative to immunize all of the world's children against polio. Since 1985, more than 2 billion children have received oral polio vaccine.

The second beneficiary of the Euro 2008 Raffle is Score For Peace, a program of the Institute for Multi-Track Diplomacy. Score For Peace uses sports played on a global scale as a means for promoting nonviolent interaction between peoples in conflict. The program arranges, sponsors and promotes international sports matches with ancillary conflict-resolution clinics and people-to-people programs to promote peace-building at all levels.

The third beneficiary of the raffle's proceeds is student scholarships at the Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution. As a part of George Mason University in Fairfax, VA, ICAR is committed to the research and development of best practices that interrupt the cycles of violence around the world. ICAR is a Commonwealth Center for Excellence and is recognized for its leadership in the field of conflict analysis and resolution.

"Mobilizing the passion for the global sport of soccer and the excitement of the Euro 2008 championship in the service of polio eradication and peace-building is a winning proposition," noted Lester Schoene, the Rotary Club of Annandale Director for Administration and raffle coordinator. "In fact, it's a win for everyone -- soccer lovers, the beneficiaries of this raffle and the world at large."
