Church to raffle house


A church is raffling off a south Augusta house in hopes of raising $200,000 for missions in Kenya.

New Life Christian Center plans to sell 2,000 tickets at $100 each. A drawing date will be set after all the tickets are sold, according to a church staffer.

The mission, Project Kenya, has built several churches in Kenya and recently purchased a new well-drilling truck. Six locations for new wells have been identified, according to the church.

The newly renovated house was donated to the church and is on a 0.44-acre lot on Saratoga Court, near Rosier Road. It has three bedrooms and 2½ bathrooms. The winner will be responsible for filing taxes on the earnings.
