2014 Community Basket Day

Each year, area non-profit organizations sell raffle tickets to win Iowa's Largest Community Basket. One person wins the entire "basket" of items, including $10,000 cash!  Raffle tickets will be available the end of January and cost just $2 per ticket. For every ticket purchase, the non-profit organization who sells the ticket keeps $1. By purchasing raffle tickets, not only are you giving yourself a chance to win but you're supporting area charities!

The drawing for the Community Basket will be held at Community Field on Sunday, May 18th when the Bees take on Cedar Rapids Kernels at 2:00pm. You do not have to be present to win the basket but if you are, you'll win an extra $1,000 cash from the Friends of Community Field!

If your group would like to participate in this fundraiser, please contact Kim at or (319)754-5705. Participating groups must show proof that they have a 501(c)(3) status.
