Crusader Raffle 2009 Prize Winners!

Thank you to all who purchased tickets and volunteered their time to make the 2009 Crusader Raffle a success. This year, Crusader Raffle ticket revenue was more than $111,000 exceeding our goal of $105,000!

At 3:00 pm today, Wednesday, January 13, 2010, the prize winners in the 2009 Crusader Raffle were drawn as follows:

  • $10,000 – Nancy Ruiter
  • $5,000  –  Carol Boyle
  • $2,000  – Sylvia Samson
  • $1,000  –  Barb Lockhart
  • $1,000  – R. Marcelino

The Crusader Raffle is the one time in the year when all students and parents are asked to take an active volunteer role in a specific fundraising campaign. The proceeds from the annual Crusader Raffle help the students of today and tomorrow by funding current student activities and programs and by supporting the Bursary Program.

The success of the 2009 Crusader Raffle was made possible through the support of students, parents, alumni and friends of St Paul’s.

A big thank you to:

Thank you to our Parents, who support the Raffle by volunteering to staff ticket selling booths in shopping malls and by encouraging their sons to get out and sell tickets.
