Tricky tray fundraisers have been known by many names. They have been dubbed penny auctions, Chinese basket auctions, gift auctions and brown-bag auctions. For all of these events, participants purchase raffle tickets and place the tickets in canisters near the items they hope to win. One person can put as many tickets as they want in a given container to increase the odds of winning.

Newspaper Media Group featured the story to continue spreading awareness across the state.

Brandywine Living at Princeton presented Robyn Kohn, manager of Programs, and Krista McKay, director of Programs of The Alzheimer’s Association, with a total of $4,300.
