Website Construction

Building the best website and service for our Raffle requires the dedicated efforts of a CXC team responsible for website design and implementation, including a “front end” that consists of all the web presentation-related assets and code plus a “back end” that consists of a database engine, customer handling engine and a ticket processor.  We extend our team with the able assistance of three consulting resources.
