So this all started with a friend helping another friend......
One of our students, Dawson M. (then age 11), wanted to help out his local fair where he had been showing pigs and beef at for three years. Dawson's friend, Tucker N., has cystic fibrosis. Dawson wanted to help his friend to raise funds for cystic fibrosis research as well. Dawson raised and donated his pig for a raffle to support both causes. Now, the raffle has grown to include a half beef, a whole pig, a whole sheep, and other cash prizes!
This year we are challenging W-C, Royall, Hillsboro, New Lisbon, and Mauston Schools to see which school can raise the most money through the purchase of these raffle tickets. The individual who purchases their tickets from the school that raises the most money will have their name entered in for a drawing for tickets to the rodeo during the Elroy Fair.
Tickets are $5 each and $20 for a book of five. Tickets will be sold until they run out and the drawing will take place at the Elroy Fair on June 28, 2015.
You can purchase tickets at the WC district office (during normal school hours) and at the following businesses:
- Blossoms & Bouquets (Wonewoc)
- Royall Bank (Elroy)
- Ray's Shoe Store (Mauston)
- Rural Mutual Insurance (Mauston)
- Scenic Bluffs (Union Center)
- Farmers State Bank (Union Center)
If you have any questions about the raffle, please contact Shannon Miller (608-381-0113).
