Raffle basket a Telethon tradition

$3,000 of goodies could be yours

For more than 10 years now, Deb Etherington has wrapped the Comox Valley Child Development Association deluxe raffle basket as a contribution to the annual Children’s Telethon.

With the support of her previous employer, Quality Foods, and now with the support of her new employer, 5th Street Florist, Deb has worked her wrapping magic.

This is no easy feat.

The raffle basket contains a lot of items – over $3,000 worth of goods and services – that come in all shapes and sizes.

This year’s basket includes gift certificates for local dining, spa and salon treatments and great shopping throughout the Valley.  There is a handmade quilt, a cookbook, some children’s toys, handcrafted art cards, an antique crate and of course, a beautiful basket.  These are just a few of the items and it is winner take all.  Thanks to Deb, all of these items are tied up with one beautiful bow!

Tickets are on sale at the Child Development Association as well as at various locations throughout the community.

They are just $2 each or three for $5.
