4R’s raffle draw Friday

This time of year is for giving, so why not consider a gift in the name of a friend who has everything?

This time of year is for giving, so why not consider a gift in the name of a friend who has everything?

For example, a donation to the local charitable organization, 4R’s Education Centre (Soc.). You will receive a charitable donation receipt and your kind gift goes immediately towards providing the individualized instruction a student needs.

A child struggling in school could benefit from one-on-one help in an established, friendly setting such as that offered by 4R’s. Since 1989, this local non-profit organization has been offering specialized one-on-one teaching in private classrooms with fully qualified teachers.

Another option – the 4R’s annual raffle draw will be on Dec. 21 at 3 p.m. At just $5 a ticket, there is a chance to win a return flight for two to anywhere WestJet flies, a Linda Hamilton king- or queen-size handcrafted quilt, or some one-on-one personal training sessions from TJ’s Cardio-Kix.

For details, call 250-338-4890 or drop by the office at 581 McPhee Ave. in Courtenay.
