Every year the Washington DC Area Browns Backers Club hosts a raffle benefiting charities in Washington DC and Northeast Ohio. Just like in previous years, the proceeds will be split equally between the Toys For Tots chapters in Washington, D.C. and Cleveland. This way, we are helping the community we are a part of now, as well as helping the place we proudly call “home”—Cleveland and Northeast Ohio. Stay tuned for a list of our fantastic raffle packages for 2021!
