Members of the Vavenby Primary School PAC (parents advisory committee) met with principal Mike Bowden on June 14 to pick the winners of their recent Father’s Day raffle.
After the tickets had been given a good mixing by each of the representatives, the children were given the opportunity to draw each ticket.
The winners were: 1st prize, a barbecue package of assorted meats from Safety Mart went to Kathy Cederholm of Vavenby; 2nd, an oil change up to $100 from Wells Gray Service Center went to L. Gallagher of Vavenby; 3rd, a game kit from Dee’s General Store went to Lisa Wilkinson of Clearwater; 4th, a free pizza certificate from Vavenby General Store went to Lavonne Tobin of Clearwater; and 5th, a $20 gift card from Rona went to Toni Schuchardt of Vavenby.
The money will go towards new playground equipment as well as for extracurricular items such as skates and skis.
Organizers hope to make the raffle an annual event.
