BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — A Western New York favorite is going virtual. The spinning of the wheel to win meat and raise money for a great cause is back.

On July 28th the Chillin' & Grillin virtual meat and veggie raffle will be hosted online benefiting the Community Action Organization of Western New York. The money raised will go towards helping CAO continue their funds to support families during this pandemic.

You can host your own meat raffle party with family right in your backyard. You can buy your tickets here, they are $50 which will include entry into all 12 rounds of drawing with three spins. Each ticket will also enter you into three bonus rounds, a gift card raffle, and a 50/50 raffle.

Pellicano's Marketplace in North Tonawanda will be supplying the meats. Surf & turf options, ribs, hot dogs, steaks, and other cuts of meat will be available to win. After the raffle, you can pick up your prizes at Pellicano's on Niagara Falls Blvd.

The CAO had to cancel their meat raffle in March due to COVID-19, this is a way for them to raise the much-needed funds and to host a fun event to the community.
