The Optimist Clubs of British Columbia in partnership with Curl BC once again are offering a $5,000 cash prize in a raffle to support youth curling development. There also will be eight $500 prizes.
Tickets cost $20 each and are available from your local Optimist Club or your local curling centre. Only 1,600 tickets will be sold.
The money raised from the annual raffle funds “Optimists' Getting Started Camps” throughout the province. At these curling development camps, 15-17 year old juvenile curlers assist a professional trainer in teaching skills to the younger (9-11 year old) curlers.
The 2015-16 draw will be held on Saturday, April 16, 2016 at 9:30 PM during the Pacific International Cup curling event at the Richmond Curling Club.
