With no in-person fundraising events this year due to COVID, this online raffle is the Hood River County Education Foundation’s primary fundraiser for Impact Teaching Grants. Every year, local educators brainstorm creative new ways to teach or subjects to explore and apply for grants to fund their outside-the-budget ideas. This year, HRCEF awarded over $41,000 in grants to our teachers through the Impact Teaching Grants Programs.
We need YOUR help to make next year’s innovative teaching ideas a reality for students across Hood River County.
Each raffle ticket purchased enters you to win one of 12 FABULOUS PRIZES. Prizes have been randomized, so you may win any (and many) of these amazing prizes. Ticket sales limited to 1,000 tickets.
Drawing will be held Monday, April 4, 2022 at 10 am. UPDATE
