Child Hunger Outreach Partners (CHOP) will be hosting Purse Lotto during the month of February to help raise funds for our programs.
“I got the idea from purse bingos that I see organizations do. Our service area is so large, and I wanted to be able to include everyone, so we went with a virtual model. Now, I have people from all over the country participating!” said Dani Ruhf, Executive Director/Founder.
Tickets are 2 for $25, with no cap on ticket purchases. All proceeds stay local to help children through our Backpack Program, In-School Pantries, Summer Meals and Pop Up Pantries.
Live drawings begin Feb. 1 and are held daily all month long. Non-local winners will have their purse shipped to them.
To look at the purses, visit the Purse Lotto Facebook group. Winners will be posted nightly in the group.

“The majority of our funding comes from grants, but we use the purse lotto money to fill in the gaps or to run programs that pop up, or to bring on new schools quickly before funding has been established. We can feed a child for a month for $5 so every purse lotto ticket equates to five children,” said Ruhf.
