MIDDLETOWN, Md. (AP) — Slow ticket sales have forced a group in Middletown to postpone a raffle drawing for a four-bedroom home valued at $475,000.

The Frederick News-Post reported Friday that the Middletown High School Sports Club has sold just over 3,000 tickets at $100 each. The group says it had to sell at least 6,000 to hold a drawing that had been scheduled for Thursday.

Club Vice President Keith Powell says the drawing will now be held in September.

He says this is a one-time extension.

Powell says the group had to either postpone the drawing or cancel the raffle and refund $99 to each contestant.
