The Osterhout Free Library announces Mericle Commercial Real Estate Services is once again sponsoring the trip raffle. This year’s trip is to Havana, Cuba, thus tying into the Night in Havana Gala theme. The gala will be held at 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 14, at the Westmoreland Club with the raffle winner being picked that night. Raffle tickets are $25 each or five for $100 and are available at the Osterhout Main Library, 71 S. Franklin St. or any of its three branches. The winner need not be present at the gala but must be 21 years old. The raffle winner will receive a trip for two to Havana, Cuba. The trip includes roundtrip airfare for two, five nights’ accommodations and the tour details can be arranged at the time of booking. The trip has a value of $5,000 and can be redeemed for another vacation within one year. All proceeds from the Havana, Cuba Trip Raffle and the gala support the Osterhout Free Library and its mission to provide free books, DVDs, CDs and educational programs to the residents of Wilkes-Barre and surrounding communities.
