BROOKFIELD – The Brookfield Chamber of Commerce is getting ready for its biggest yearly fundraiser, according to Tom Milani, the chamber’s president.

60-to-Win returns with its first drawing schedule for Sept. 11 at Joe’s Saloon, 9220 47th St.

For 60-to-Win, the chamber only will sell 1,100 tickets, priced at $20 each. The tickets can be purchased from chamber members throughout the community; at the chamber’s office, 1305 N. Barker Road; or at participating businesses.

“It’s a fun promotion and the odds of winning are very good,” Milani said.

Drawings are held weekly for 10 weeks, with six prizes awarded each week. Drawings will be held every Thursday at 4:30 p.m. at Joe’s Saloon.

Additionally, winning tickets are not removed, but placed back into the pot for more chances to win. Each week, a $500 winner is picked, as well as five $100 winners.

According to Milani, each ticket has 60 chances to be drawn a winner and a single ticket can win multiple times.

“I personally sold 10 tickets last year, and there was a $500 winner and a $100 winner among them,” Milani said. “So as I said, the odds aren’t bad.”

According to Milani, the funds raised from the ticket sales go to support the chamber’s yearly activities and promotions – basically back to the community.

“It enables us to help support local projects like the statue and other enhancements that are forthcoming at [the] taxi stand near the train station, as well as other local causes, and provides the funding needed to run the various events we sponsor or co-sponsor with the village throughout the year,” Milani said.
