Hockey fever and the annual Children’s Telethon just seem to go hand in hand.
The Comox Valley Child Development Association is raffling off two tickets to the January 30, 2015 Vancouver Canucks vs Buffalo Sabres game. The lucky winner will also collect deluxe accommodation for two at a downtown Vancouver hotel. Raffle proceeds support the annual Children’s Telethon, now in its 39th year.
Only 300 tickets will be sold for the Canucks Hotel package so the odds of winning are excellent.
Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased in person at the Child Development Association, 237 Third Street in Courtenay or by phone at 250-338-4288.
The winning ticket will be drawn at the Telethon, live on Shaw TV, Sunday Nov. 2 at 7:30 p.m. at the Sid Williams Theatre.
The Child Development Association has a second way for you to win big and support the Telethon. Imagine a huge basket stuffed with over $2,800 worth of local treats – gift certificates for restaurants, spas, salons, and speciality shops, passes for skiing and golf, handmade truffles, beauty products, travel accessories, handcrafted quilt, and art cards, children’s books, toys and games and much, much more.
No you are not dreaming; it’s the Child Development Association’s annual Deluxe Raffle Basket. Local businesses and artisans have generously donated gift certificates and merchandise to stuff this year’s basket with a fabulous assortment of quality winnings to support the annual Children’s Telethon. Keep all the great prizes for yourself or share your good fortune with family and friends – gift giving couldn’t be easier.
Raffle Basket tickets are available at the Child Development Association, 237 Third Street in Courtenay or by phone at 250-338-4288. In addition, the basket and ticket sales will be making the rounds at various locations around the Comox Valley over the next few weeks. Tickets are only $2 each or three for $5, with the lucky winning ticket to be drawn at the Telethon, live on Shaw TV, Sunday November 2nd at 7:30 pm at the Sid Williams Theatre.
And the third way to win? The real winners in this venture are local children with special needs and their families.
Like the Telethon, all monies raised by the Raffle Basket and the Hockey Raffle stay in the community to support programs and services for local children with special needs and their families.
Therapy equipment, specialized toys, support resources for parents including books, videos, and hands on training – these are just some of the areas that the Child Development Association puts these earnings to work.
