Making every dollar count
Mar. 3, 2017 | After a final week of heavy promotion and constant dedication, the Carnival Committee sold their last Dollar Sale tickets this afternoon at lunch.
Year after year, the Dollar Sale is the key fundraiser that makes Winter Carnival possible. For a mere $1 purchase, customers are given 25 tickets to “bid” on whichever prizes they desire. The prizes are all donated from various community members and have been on display in the Student Centre all week. With donations ranging from gifts cards to food baskets, from custom-designed “BCS” Doc Marten’s to family day passes for tubing, the wide variety of prizes ensures there is something for everyone. As of this afternoon, the sale has helped the Carnival Committee to raise close to $800!
The draws for all prizes will take place tonight at 7:00 PM in the Student Centre.
