WRRD Lions Pontoon Raffle Ticket sales strong

By Jack Elliott

Again this year ticket sales for the West Rainy River Lions Club Pontoon Boat Raffle are proving to be very strong. Held each year and drawn at the Rainy River Walleye Tournament the raffle for a Princecraft Pontoon Boat package from Nestor Falls Marine is being widely supported across the District. This year’s ticket sales to June 1 are ahead of what they were in mid July last year. Last year tickets were completely sold out by early September and it looks like 2021 will be a sell out as well. At only $20 each, tickets are available at many merchants across the District as well as from WRRD Lions members.
