Rick's Raffle is a memorial raffle in honor of Rick Dornier, beloved CCA Kid. Rick passed away on Christmas Eve in 2009. One of Rick's Christmas gifts that year was a Thomas the Train play table, because Thomas was his favorite. That year, Rick's parents donated the table to their local Children's Hospital and a year later, Rick's grandparents, Ann and Doug Burgin (with input from his family), came up with the idea for an annual fundraiser, Rick's Raffle.
The Thomas toys were Rick’s favorites and the winning ticket is drawn on Rick’s birthday. The Burgin and Dornier families remain steadfast in their wish that funds from the raffle be designated for CCA’s Patient Financial Assistance program which will help families defray expenses during medical care for craniofacial conditions. Since it started in 2011, the memorial raffle has already garnered over $5,000 toward the program fund.
Children's Craniofacial Association is extremely grateful to Ann & Doug Burgin, founders of the raffle, and to Rick's family: Jessica, Randy, Julia & Luke for dedicating the memorial funds to help all CCA kids in Rick's name.
