Santee resident Bradley Petersen recently won the choice between a Sea-Doo Speedster or $10,000 cash in the first of three early bird drawings that are part of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego’s Dream House Raffle.
In February, Devinder Chopra of Mission Valley, Bradley Petersen of Santee and Marialyn Sardo of Carmel Valley were selected as early bird winners and are still eligible to win the grand prize – a $3.2 million Rancho Santa Fe home or $1.6 million cash. As early bird winners, Chopra gets to choose between a 2013 Toyota Prius or $25,000 cash; Petersen gets a Sea-Doo Speedster or $10,000 cash; and Sardo has a choice between a Vespa Motor Scooter or $5,000 cash.
A second early bird drawing is scheduled for March 20 and includes cash prizes ranging from $1,000 to $15,000. Eight winners will be selected and tickets must be purchased by March 8 to be eligible for the early bird drawing.
The early bird drawings designed to reward participants who purchase a $150 ticket early in the raffle period.

“One of the best things about the Dream House Raffle is the multitude of prizes raffle participants can win just by purchasing a ticket early, buying multiple tickets or referring a friend,” said Chuck Day, president and CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego. “The raffle really is a great way for the Ronald McDonald House to raise money to help us care for families with a critically ill or injured child being treated at local hospitals, and we look forward to awarding prizes to those who support us through buying a raffle ticket.“
This year, the charity is also offering a chance to win an iPad to anyone who shares raffle information online using a special “Spread the Word” button on www.sdraffle.com.
