La Voz de Almería, our local newspaper, is celebrating its 75th anniversary, and has been honoured by appearing on this Saturday’s ONCE lottery ticket.
ONCE, for those of you who don’t know, is the Spanish Org for the Blind, and raises money via a national lottery. Visually impaired people sell the tickets, receiving a salary for doing so, and the money raised goes towards aid programmes across the country.
Their lottery ticket always features a nationally important event, monument or place, and this week Almería will be promoted across the nation.
If you win this Saturday’s ONCE, you’ll receive €300,000 in cash and a “salary” of €5,000 a month for the next 20 years. (Less taxes of course).
Four second prizes are €2,000 a month during 10 years.
