Spray Park committee, kcs Association host raffle fundraiser

The tickets for one of two 100 bottle wine trees go on sale Nov. 10

The Sylvan Lake Spray Park Committee, in partnership with kcs Association, is holding a Wine Raffle starting Nov. 10.

There are two wine trees up for grabs in the raffle and each tree features 100 bottles of wine.

Since the raffle is in partnership with kcs Association tickets will go on sale at the kcs Association market on Nov. 10 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Community Centre.

Tickets will also be available after the market through Spray Park Committee members.

Tickets for the Wine Raffle will be $10, with a portion of the profits going towards the kcs Association early learning programs.

“That’s kind of the debut spot for ticket sales, so we’ll have tickets for those available at that event and we’ll have a little table with some information about some of the changes that have happened with the Spray Park committee and we just want to get people knowing what our plans are and that we’re working hard and planning to get some things out,” said committee vice president Kayla Webb, who explained they have recently restructured the committee.

“We’ve applied for non-profit status,” continued Webb. “We have a strategic plan from now until spring of 2020 and we have a goal of breaking ground in 2020.”

The committee is hoping to engage their architects in the spring and then have plans to build the following spring, which will require about $75,000 to make happen.

“Once we reach that we have a ton of grants with the non-profit status we’re going to able to apply for and hopefully get, so a little amount can grow pretty quickly, but we’re just mostly really wanting to let people know that this is going to happen [and] we are working hard,” added Webb.

There is 1,000 tickets available per wine tree.

The draw will be made on Dec. 15.
