Trustee, Benefactors of Red Rock State Park
Sedona AZ (April 8, 2020) – Benefactors of Red Rock State Park is continuing to hold their outdoor classroom raffle online. Through May 25, Benefactors is offering raffle tickets at their website www.benefactorsrrsp.org.
This raffle is raising funds to build a new outdoor classroom to replace the one that washed away in a flood a year ago. To be built on safe higher ground, the new classroom will be used by all ages, but particularly elementary students. Red Rock State Park’s School Connection Program hosts over 1,500 area students each year, introducing them to the wonders of the natural world. Ever since the old classroom was washed away, the Park has lacked an outdoor classroom for this great educational program.
There will be two separate raffle drawings. A Fifty-Fifty Raffle will award a 1st prize of 25% of the proceeds of the raffle, a 2nd prize of 15% of the proceeds and a 3rd prize of 10% of the proceeds. 50% will go toward rebuilding the outdoor classroom.
The second raffle will award a number of prizes donated by local businesses. You can win 2 lodging nights, tickets for local adventures, or meals at local restaurants. Winners of 5 Arizona State Parks Standard Annual Passes will also be drawn. A complete list of prizes is available online at www.benefactorsrrsp.org.
Tickets for these raffles will be $5 each, or $20 for five. The drawing will be held on May 25, and you do not need to be present in order to win.
