The Great Falls Public Schools Foundation will again sponsor a truck raffle fundraiser. City Motor Company will once more donate the truck; a 2015 “Red” Toyota Tacoma. Any public school organization is welcome to partner with the Foundation on this extremely successful fundraiser.
Raffle tickets will sell for $10 and all school organizations that sell tickets will receive 60% of the sale and the Foundation will receive 40%. Therefore, 100% of the ticket sales support education for public school students in Great Falls.
Ticket sales start on July 21, 2014 and the winner will be drawn at half-time of the CMR vs GFH Crosstown football game on October 31. The Foundation has secured a booth at the Montana State Fair July 25 – August 2 where a different organization will sell tickets each day.
