Students will then be selling raffle tickets at $10 a piece to friends and family. Gift cards are a great option for holiday giving! Each day in December an HA student will draw at random one winning raffle ticket! The winner will be announced via Class DoJo, social media and our HA Newsletter. Gift Cards should be donated before November 22nd. All entry tickets should be filled out with buyer information on the back and returned with funds raised in the envelope titled “HA Calendar Raffle” going home today.
