To help celebrate Dakota State University's 2019 homecoming week and show off the university's new mascot design, the staff at the DSU Foundation are holding a fund-raising raffle for a Trojan beanbag board set with the winner drawn during halftime of the homecoming football game.

The first-place winner will receive the set of beanbags and beanbag boards decorated with DSU's new Trojan mascot. A second-place winner will receive a $50 Visa gift card.

The raffle tickets are priced at $5 each or five tickets for $20.

According to Carrie Slaathaug, interim alumni engagement director, the foundation will evenly split the proceeds from the raffle between the endowed scholarship programs sponsored by the DSU Alumni Association.

To obtain more information about raffle tickets, individuals can contact Slaathaug at 256-5009, go online to carrie.slaathaug@dsu.edu, or visit the foundation offices in Madison at N.E 2nd St. and Washington Ave.
