How does a $50 gift card to nearly every restaurant in Patchogue sound to you?

That’s at least $1,500 in free food from some 30 restaurants.

It’ll be the best winter of your life spending that.

That’s right, the Greater Patchogue Chamber of Commerce will once again be giving away two gift baskets stuffed with $50 gift cards for the third installment of the “30 Days of Dining” in Patchogue raffle contest.

It’s $20 per ticket. (Scroll down for ticket information.)

The winners will be announced during the Midnight on Main St. New Year’s Eve ball-dropping countdown and fireworks display, which happens at 9 p.m. on Dec. 31 downtown. The winners don’t need to be present.

The raffle proceeds help fund the New Year’s Eve event.

“Obtaining a raffle is easy!,” according to a chamber announcement. “You can visit any of our Patchogue area chamber member restaurants and purchase one directly, or you can click here to purchase at their website, Patchogue.com.”
