Last Chance to get your Pontoon Raffle Tickets

Where did the summer go? Whoosh, we are into fall! The Rainy River Walleye Tournament is only days away. You only have the next 10 days to get your tickets for a chance at that lovely Princecraft Vectra 21 Pontoon Boat. 

The West Rainy River District Lions uses all the proceeds from this raffle to support eligible charitable projects across the Rainy River Valley. Their most recent effort at the Emo Fair in support of the 4 H Building Project raised over $7000.

The draw for the Princecraft  Vectra 21 Grand Prize valued at $46,900.00 plus a 2nd Prize of $1,500.00 cash and a 3rd Prize of $500.00 cash will take place at the close of ceremonies at the Rainy River Walleye Tournament on Saturday, September 18, 2021. You only have until then to purchase your ticket. 

Currently there are still tickets available at many merchants across the Rainy River Valley until Friday, September 17. On Saturday, September 18 tickets will be available at the RRWT Big Tent up until just before the draw, depending on ticket availability. A maximum of 5000 tickets can be sold. Last year’s draw was 100% sold out.

Tickets are only $20 each. Don’t be disappointed. Get yours today.

You’ve seen it throughout the District all summer – even back when gas was only $1.30. To see it in in your driveway, you need to buy a ticket. Proceeds from the raffle have already started to flow into the community, with $7,000 in sales going towards a the 4-H Building project, for a new food shack at the fair grounds. – File photo
