So far we have raised $12,282.   We need to sell a total of 2,944 tickets to reach our goal of $27,000. Remember to sell your Come Home to Shrine raffle tickets by November 2nd!   The final drawing for all prizes will be at 2pm during the High School and Academy Open House on November 2nd.  Please write checks to Shrine Catholic Schools.  If every family sold just 5 of their raffle tickets, that would be a $15,000 profit for our kids and schools!  Imagine if we all sold 20 or more raffle tickets!  This is what makes Shrine Catholic Schools special – how we all work together to improve the education of our children.
