This year you can purchase a raffle ticket for each specific prize you wish. 

Our 11 raffle packages include restaurant gift certificates, furniture and home decor, pampering, soaking in hot springs and area adventures, shopping sprees, family fun, goodies for pets and more.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Aspire’s affordable prenatal care program and parenting classes. 

Aspire currently provides services to more than 80 percent of all pregnant women in Archuleta County which include pregnancy tests, early ultrasounds, prenatal care, prenatal and parenting education and STI/STD testing and treatment. 

Over the past few years, our prenatal clinic has helped lower the preterm birth rate and low birth rate percentage in our area by allowing disadvantaged women to see a quality MD for prenatal care up to 36 weeks. 

In addition, Aspire offers free childbirth, prenatal and parenting education to all parents of children age zero to 3 years old. Aspire’s goal is to help all children zero to 3 years of age thrive physically, emotionally and socially during the most pivotal stage of development.
