Southern Chester County Chamber to hold drawing to benefit victims of Oxford fire

The Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce will hold a $10,000 Golden Ticket raffle that will be drawn on Dec. 13 to benefit the many families who were displaced after a fire on Third Street in Oxford on Sept. 13.

The Chamber is currently selling 300 tickets at $100 each, and $5,000 from the proceeds raised by the raffle will go directly to #OxfordStrong in support of the community’s recovery. The owner of the winning drawing will receive $10,000. 

A reception and live drawing will be held at Paradocx Vineyard, LLC, 1833 Flint Hill Road in Landenberg, beginning at 5:00 p.m. on Dec. 13. The Golden Ticket recipient need not be present to win, but the participant who attends and wins will receive a complimentary reserved seat to the Chamber’s 2024 Annual Gala.

“There exists here a level of camaraderie and caring not seen elsewhere, and we are here for each other whether for business purposes, professional support or to build relationships,” said SCCCC President and CEO Cheryl Kuhn. “Our business community is strong, focused, and committed to each other and our region. 

“The four-alarm fire in beautiful downtown Oxford destroyed businesses and apartments and displaced nearly 100 people. Through tireless efforts of the Union Fire Company, joined by fire companies from Delaware and Cecil County, the Oxford Police, Oxford Borough, Oxford Area Neighborhood Services, American Red Cross, SILO, Oxford Area Chamber of Commerce and others, the devasted families and individuals were quickly offered shelter, food and provisions.”

Sponsors of the drawing and Dec. 13 event include Comcast, Constellation Energy Corporation, Longwood Gardens, PECO and Perna & Abracht, LLC.
