Raffle Update

As of press time, we have been notified that we will receive our Raffle License very soon! This is such an exciting opportunity for our readers and volunteers to get a chance to go to Italy.

We are particularly grateful for the generosity of Teresa Spinelli, President of the Italian Centre Shop, Ltd. for her donation of the airfare portion of the prize. The trip will be one week of accommodation plus airfare, for a prize value of over $5,000.

If you are interested in purchasing tickets ($10/each) you can write to Paula at editor@bmcnews.org and put your name on the growing waiting list. Or, call Colleen at (780) 668-3194.

We will sell only 2,500 tickets, so get on the list as soon as you can. We are set to do online purchases, as well as in person. There is no cost to put your name on the list, and you will be notified first of their availability prior to the start of cash sales.

Boyle McCauley News Raffle Rules

Win a trip for two to anywhere in Italy. Prize value $5,000.

Prize must be awarded within a year of the date of the draw. Prize may be transferred to another person, i.e. as a gift to another person in the event the winner cannot travel.

Value is based on one week of accommodation and airfare. Prize winners may opt to stay longer at their own cost. Boyle McCauley News will pay for accommodation up to a value of $3,000. We will work with the prize winners to ensure the best value for the dollar amount. If accommodation is less than that amount, the winner will receive the balance in cash for the trip.

The draw will be at our Gala 40th Anniversary Dinner at the Santa Maria Goretti Banquet Centre, 11050 – 90 Street, Edmonton, on March 9, 2019.

Tickets may also be purchased from board members or staff, or designated businesses in the community.

Tickets are $10 each. Only 2,500 tickets will be printed.

You must be 18 or over to purchase a ticket.

In the event we are unable to see enough tickets by the draw date, we will request an extension to make the draw at Viva Italia Viva Edmonton in August of 2019.
