Holy Redeemer students join fundraising campaign for Catholic education
Holy Redeemer School students will participate in a fundraising campaign in support of their Catholic school.
The third annual Catholic Schools Raffle has the goal of raising $500,000 for Catholic education this year. The Raffle, paid for by Catholic United Financial, out of St. Paul, has injected more than $475,000 directly into Catholic school budgets since 2009.
Holy Redeemer students will sell $5 tickets for chances at prizes such as a 2012 Ford Escape, two Caribbean cruise packages, iPads, Playstation3 Moves, Kindle Fires and $200 Apple store gift cards. More than $45,000 in prizes will be awarded at the grand prize drawing on March 1, 2012.
Holy Redeemer joins more than 70 other schools, also vying for their own grand prizes: $6,000 Smart Board packages awarded to the three schools with the most per-student ticket sales. Tickets are now available for purchase through the students or by contacting Holy Redeemer at 507-532-6642 and will be sold through Feb. 24.
Students and classrooms are also competing for top-fundraising honors. Top performing students at each school will win either a Sony camera or a Nintendo Wii. Every top-selling classroom will celebrate with a pizza party.
