2021 Spring Raffle #PANDASTRONG

It’s GAME ON Pandas!

We have received a few questions about the #PANDASTRONG raffle.

What is it for?

Where is the money going?

Why are the raffle tickets more expensive than in the past?

As you all know, we have had to cancel our Spring Carnival two years in a row. The result for Penny Road is a loss of $30,000 in fundraising. This year, the decision was made to raffle off some of the items we had been holding from last year, some of which would expire before next year. This raffle won’t begin to scratch the surface of that loss, but it will help our school, our students, and our teachers.

Prizes must be picked up at Penny Road, however, you do not have to be a Penny Road family to win a prize. Check out the link, purchase some raffle tickets, and share it on Social Media! We are trying to finish out our fundraising year #pandastrong and we greatly appreciate your support! The raffle is open now, and tickets are available for purchase until May 31st. Winners will be drawn electronically by the raffle site on June 1st and will be notified that day. There is something for everyone.
