Teacher for the Northern Outdoors Studies Program at North Hastings High School, James Burbidge, has announced that its bi-annual raffle is being held this year to raise all-important funds for this well-respected program.

“The operation of our program depends on fundraising from our bi-annual raffle. I am writing to give you the opportunity to support our program (and maybe win a nice prize) by purchasing raffle tickets,” says Burbidge. Tickets are being sold for five dollars each and 2,500 tickets have been printed.

The raffle will be held at the NOS Open House on January 19, 2023 at 8 p.m. The full slate of 24 raffle prizes valued at over $6,000 is listed below. For those wanting to purchase tickets, you can e-transfer the funds to jameburb@gmail,com. Put “NOS Raffle” in the message. No security question is required. Burbidge will complete the stubs on your behalf, and enter them in the draw.
