The Guzman family has generously donated a hand-painted Stipes bench for our school carnival. We would like to ask each student to help by selling at least 5 tickets to friends and family for a chance to win the bench. Each ticket should be sold for $1. When a ticket is sold, have the buyer fill out the ticket with their contact info. Please return the money collected with the completed ticket, and the ticket will go into the hopper for the drawing at our carnival on 10/29. The winner does not have to be present to win. Please return all sold tickets and the money by 10/29 at the start of the carnival. Thank you!
