Raffle time at 4Rs Education Centre

4R raffle funds support children in need of one-to-one tutoring whose families can't afford such services.

It is raffle time again at 4Rs Education Centre.

This is really important to 4Rs because the funds raised from the raffle go towards the financial aid fund supporting children in need of one-to-one tutoring whose families can’t afford such services.

Tickets cost one for $5 or five for $20.

The goal is to sell 2,125 tickets.

Ask your co-workers if they are interested or consider purchasing some for your staff Christmas party. These tickets make great stocking stuffers.

This year there are three great prizes, including a return flight for two with Pacific Coastal Air from Courtenay or Campbell River to Vancouver South Terminal, with taxes and fees included — a value of $916.56.

A queen/king-size quilt by Linda Hamilton and two tickets to the Vancouver Canucks playing the Anaheim Ducks on March 29 are the other prizes.

The first name drawn will choose one of the three prizes. Second name drawn will choose one of the remaining two prizes. Third name drawn will receive the remaining prize.

The draw date is Feb. 14.
