CHAMPAIGN -- One July 4th Celebration has a new sponsor. The Illinois Lottery is helping make the Champaign County Freedom Celebration bigger and better. It donated $5,000 toward the event.

The lottery wanted to promote its new July 4th raffle ticket. Organizers say it costs around $100,000 to put on the annual 4th of July Celebration, so corporate sponsors are a must. Champaign is one of the six cities selected for the donation.
