The Redcliff Youth Centre is selling tickets for its inaugural Spring Raffle Fundraiser.
The proceeds raised will be matched up to 50 per cent through Shaw Birdies for Kids in support of the RYC’s mental health and life-skill capacity building program.
“We know the circumstances with COVID had a great effect on so many small businesses in our community,” said Janae Ulrich, RYC’s executive director.
“As a charity, businesses have been so supportive of us in the past, that it was a really great way for us to give back to them with the help of Sun City Ford, who’s sponsoring the event. We were able to purchase a lot of our items and collaborate with a lot of local businesses to provide four prize packages.”
The first-place winner will take home a Yeti Camp Package that will include a Yeti cooler, two Lazy Bear heated camping chairs, two Yeti tumblers, four ramblers and two mugs.
Second place takes home a Backyard Barbeque package that includes a Broil King barbeque/ two stove burner and cover, $150 Mike’s Meats gift card, $50 Home Depot gift card, barbeque utensil package, Swan Retro slow cooker and a local sauce and spices package.
Third place is a Home-Cation package of an outdoor wood burning fire pit, Swan Retro slow cooker, blue tooth outdoor speaker and a bundle of firewood.
Foruth place is s elf-care package with three individual sessions with Open Space Pilates and Sultry and Silk Aerial Arts Studio.
“Typically, we would be out in the community and have a table set up, getting to know some of our supporters,” said Ulrich.
“But due to the circumstances with COVID, I think everybody is trying to find new fundraising initiatives. So, yeah we decided to host this one online.”
Tickets are one for $10 or 3 for $20 and can be purchased at http://www.redcliffyouthcentre.com until the draw date on June 30.
