BONHAM -- You still have time to get in on a playhouse raffle benefiting the Fannin County Family Crisis Center.

Four life-sized playhouses are on display on each corner of the square in downtown Bonham.

The center has held the raffle four out of the past five years.

One playhouse has a duck theme, another is in the shape of a pirate ship, one is a barn house and the fourth has crooked windows and doors.

"It helps them and it helps us because if they win it then they have it for a Christmas gift for their child or their grandchild," executive director Becky Williams said. "But, it really helps our center in a big way to help clients."

Raffle tickets are $3, or two for $5.

They're available at the Creative Arts Center, American Bank of Texas, Bonham Family Drug, the Bonham Chamber of Commerce, Lifetime Chiropractic and the Fannin County Family Crisis Center. 

In Leonard, tickets are being sold at Kwik Chek, Furniture Gallery, Leonard Pharmacy, American Bank of Texas and Buchanan Insurance.

The drawing will be held during a holiday parade beginning at 4:30pm this Saturday on the square in Bonham.
