The Ninnekah Public School Foundation raffles closed Monday, May 3 at midnight raising $350.
“Overall, we had a lot of interest and we plan host another raffle in April 2022,” said Foundation President Chris Wilson. “Everyone understands that this is a project that will take time to build.”
The Foundation would like to thank C Bar C Trailers, Creative Image Studios, Wing T’s, and a number of anonymous donors that contributed prizes to the raffle.
“We know there are several businesses that wanted to participate, but they were still recovering from the impacts of COVID,” Wilson said.
The Foundation also plans to change the pricing structure for tickets new year and hopes to secure a few larger prizes to help attract attention.
Anyone interested in supporting the Foundation can still make donations at paypal.me/NinnekahFoundation.

What is a Bucket Auction?
A bucket auction or a basket raffle is a type a raffle where participants by a number of chances and then choose to put the chances in the “bucket” of the prizes they want to win. For example, after a Ninnekah supporter bought 100 chances, they could put 70 toward the prize they want the most, 20 toward the prize they had some interest in and the remaining 10 toward prizes with little interest. An individual could also put all their chances toward on prize they had great interest in winning. A chance is drawn from each bucket and the owner of that chance wins the prize.
