The Castlegar Sunrise 2000 Rotary Club is using all available resources to help raise awareness of its online 50/50 Ticket Raffle fundraiser.

Regular updates can be found on its website and Facebook pages.

The club is also leveraging email messaging by asking each member to pass the information on to five to 10 of their friends and asking them to pass the information and clickable link on to their friends.

The three service organizations that will receive the net money raised have also been given images, weblinks and messaging to pass on to their supporters. Those agencies are Castlegar SPCA, Castlegar Hospice and the Food Feast group at New Life Church.

Most recently the fundraiser has gone “new age” with a Facebook ad and “old school” with posters at key locations around Castlegar.

Tickets are available for $10 each or a 3-ticket pack for $25 or a 7-ticket pack for $50 at Tickets must be purchased by May 31.

If all 4,000 tickets are sold someone will win $16,000. Get your tickets now and support our local service organizations.
