Lions Raffle enjoys support from local businesses

The Ashcroft & District Lions drew the winners of their annual raffle on Feb. 12.

(L-R): President Darrell Rawcliffe with Lions Orval Trueman

This year’s Ashcroft and District Lions Club raffle was a great success. We had excellent prizes – an oil painting from artist Jo Petty, a Roberto Luongo-signed jersey from the Canucks, a 37-inch HD TV from Irly Building Supplies, four game tickets from the Kamloops Blazers and an Iginla bobble head, an oil painting from artist Joyce MacPherson, and the Bateman print and food credits were supplied by the Club. Safety Mart Foods helped with the price of the tickets.

Our raffle is a real community effort with co-operation from Interior Savings Credit Union and Safety Mart Foods as well as everyone who purchased tickets and put up with our yellow vests whenever they came to town. We appreciate the support from everyone. Some of the money is going to Canuck Place for Children, and some to support our local sports groups. I would like to mention that Gail Leibrecht gave $100 of her prize to the Food Bank. Way to go, Gail!
