OHS 2017 Raffle: And The Winners Are…

While flooding issues canceled the Oyama Fun Day activities, the Okanagan Humane Society’s 2017 Raffle Draw was held at Kangaroo Creek Farm in Lake Country. Thank you for your hospitality.

First Prize of $1000 went to Stephen Maser of West Kelowna

Second Prize of an Original Painting – Dick VanderLinde of Vernon

Third Prize of a one hour float plane ride – David Raber of Vernon

Fourth Prize of a Kitchen Aid mixer – Jaime Briggs of Kelowna

Spay or Neuter for your Pet – Paul Michel of Summerland

Thank you to all who sold or purchased tickets. 98 cents of every dollar collected goes to our work with the animals. We couldn’t do it without you.

Help Us Sell Raffle Tickets

Would your boss mind if you sold Raffle Tickets for the Okanagan Humane Society? With only 3000 tickets printed, there is a 1 in 3000 chance of winning $1000 or an hour-long sightseeing flight or 3 other terrific prizes. Selling all the tickets means we raise $15,000 to help with our animal rescue work.

2 cents or less of every dollar goes to administration. How many other non-profits can say that?

Go into a vet’s office to buy a ticket or better still, contact Louvain at 250-548-9293 and tell her you want to sell a book of tickets. Please hurry. The draw is only 5 weeks away on June 4th.
