TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Patients getting treatment at Tucson Medical Center are about to get a big boost.  Today is the kickoff for the TMC Mega Raffle.

If you haven't already, you will probably be getting one of the brochures in the mail. $2.1 million in prizes are up for grabs and right now you can buy in and make a big difference!

"It's the type of project everyone can get behind it because healthcare is so important," Kathy Rice with the TMC Mega Raffle said.

You never know when you might need the help, but through the money raised from the TMC Mega Raffle patients will be able to experience an increased level of care at Tucson Medical Center.

Rice said, "Individuals who buy a ticket have a chance at any of our 2,800 prizes. Odds of winning a prize are 1 in 20."

Great odds for some pretty incredible prizes! We're talking a brand new home you get to design yourself, several cars and trips all over the world!

Michael Martin was last years grand prize winner.  He won the home and a car.  He took the cash option for the house and drove home in a Mercedes-Benz SUV.  Martin said, "If you have the income, go ahead and buy a ticket.  You never know who is going to win.  It's all for a good cause at the end of the day."

You don't want to wait to get in on the raffle because tickets are limited. Each ticket costs $100 dollars and a set of three will run you $250.

Rice told Tucson News Now, "I know that there's a lot of people who procrastinate and I want to encourage everyone, tickets are limited, so you don't want to miss out."
