Due to coronavirus-related cancellations, we haven't been able to stick a dollar bill in the air for a ticket for a long time now. But you can attend a meat raffle -- virtually -- this Friday night.

It's being put on by PUCCS (the Program for Understanding Childhood Concussion and Stroke). Tickets are $50 and can be purchased here.

Tickets need to be purchased by Thursday October 22. The meat raffle will be held via Zoom at 7 p.m. on Friday October 23. Attendees who "show up" in costume will get a chance to win extra prizes!

Login information for the event will be sent with ticket numbers. You do not need to be present to win, but you're encouraged to "attend" live.

PUCCS mission is to provide the tools necessary to understand and prevent concussions as an injury in all sports.  They use funds, through donations, to help translate what research shows for those impacted by concussion injuries. PUCCS vision is about their educational outreach to help athletes, parents, and coaches understand the risk, identification and management of concussions and its importance in positive outcomes.

You can find out more about the virtual meat raffle here.

Here's Val talking with the director of PUCCS, Shannon Schunke.
