HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Hi, I am Tracie Fowler, executive director of United Way of Southeast Mississippi. I am here today to tell you about our 12th Annual home sweet home raffle.

This year we have an exciting twist for the raffle winner! The winner will have the option of accepting our gorgeous $315,000 home nestled in the award-winning Bellegrass community or can choose to walk away with $100,000 cash.
