Canyon Crest Academy Foundation kicks off ‘$50K for CCA’ college fund raffle drawing

In these challenging economic times schools have to be far more creative in their fundraising and Canyon Crest Academy is no exception. The CCA Foundation recently kicked off its “$50K for CCA” college fund raffle. This raffle will raise money for new computers campuswide, while providing two grand prize winners with a $25,000 cash prize that can be used toward their student’s college education. Other cash prizes will also be given.

“With the cost of higher education rising every year, a direct approach to helping families and friends support the goals of our children is ideal,” said Loraine Dyson, vice president fundraising. “$50K for CCA prizes can be applied immediately in any way to college tuition or whatever needs a family has.”

Tickets are $40 each or three for $100 and are available to everyone. Two $25,000 Grand Prizes will be awarded, in addition to a $1,000 third prize, $500 fourth prize, and a $250 fifth prize. Only 3,000 tickets will be sold, and the drawing will be held at CCA’s upcoming fundraiser, Cirque du CCA, on May 20 at Anthology.
