Limited Amount of Tickets Available for Johnson College’s Designer Purse Lottery Fundraiser

A limited amount of tickets are still available for Johnson College’s first ever Designer Purse Lottery presented by Shop Rite. Each $25 ticket gives you a chance to win purses from Coach, Fossil, Kate Spade, Michael Kors, and Tori Burch throughout February. Plus, a $1,500 Louis Vuitton on Valentine’s Day. To purchase tickets and support Johnson College’s Annual Fund visit or contact the Johnson College Development team at 570-702-8991.

Each $25 ticket will list two, 3 digit numbers. Throughout February 2021, if one of the numbers on a ticket comes in during the evening Pennsylvania Pick 3 lottery, that ticket’s owner will win the designer purse of the day. The numbers on the tickets are valid throughout February, so participants can possibly win more than once. 

All money raised will benefit the Johnson College Annual Fund. The Annual Fund assists Johnson College in producing the best technicians and technologists for the future essential workforce.
