Comox Valley Child Development Association Telethon Raffle: One ticket, two grand prizes

Telethon time is upon us again. On Sunday, Nov. 3, the Comox Valley Child Development Association (CVCDA) will host its 44th Annual Children’s Telethon at the Sid Williams Theatre from noon to 8 p.m. This year, raffle winners drawn at the event will take home one of two fantastic prizes in the annual CVCDA Raffle fundraiser. All proceeds support local children and their families.

One of the highlights each year at the Telethon is the draw for the winners of the deluxe raffle basket. The gift basket is once again filled to the brim and will not disappoint. This year’s basket contains so many really great goods and services generously donated by local businesses from throughout the Comox Valley. The complete basket is valued at $2,900 and includes numerous gift certificates for local dining, spa and salon treatments and great shopping throughout the Valley.

The lucky winner will also walk away with items including a handmade quilt, children’s books and games, beeswax wraps, local coffee and specialty teas. Of course, the stylish basket itself is part of the prize donated by Design Therapy. It has all been beautifully arranged and wrapped up by Deb Etherington and the team over at 5th Street Florist. Visit for a complete list of the contents and donors.

Additionally, and new this year, for the price of $5 your raffle ticket will give you another chance to win. On top of drawing a winner for the deluxe gift basket, the first draw of the evening will be for a return flight for two anywhere WestJet flies. One ticket, two great prizes.

CVCDA’s 2019 raffle tickets are available for sale and can be purchased right up to Telethon at a number of locations including at the main CVCDA reception at 237 – 3rd Street in Courtenay.

CVCDA’s raffle tickets will also be available at the Sid Williams Theatre during the live broadcast of the Telethon, leading up to the draw time at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3. Two random draws will take place at the Telethon; the first draw will be for the WestJet prize and the second draw will be for the deluxe gift basket.
