March Madness Raffle
Benefitting Andrus Elementary School
Andrus Elementary PTA Hosts First Ever March Madness Raffle!
The Annual Soda Pop Hop Auction and Raffle has been a huge hit with our students and families for the past 5 years. However, in 2021 we need to try something new and we think you will LOVE IT! This year our event is moving entirely online and instead of just one day, there will be 31 days of prizes. Also new this year, anyone can purchase a raffle ticket. (If you are entering the raffle from outside the greater Treasure Valley, please provide a local contact who is willing to accept a larger prize on your behalf.) And...you don't have to be present to win! That means no late night event that you have to stay at until all the winners are announced.
Purchase Your Raffle Tickets Early for the Most Chances to Win!
Tickets are $15 dollars
You can purchase multiple tickets!
Every ticket purchased before March 1st, 2020 will be entered in the raffle for all 31 days. Tickets purchased after March 1st will be entered in the raffle for each day following the day of purchase until March 31st. After March 31st, 2020, this event is closed :(
No need to be present to win the prize! All winners will be listed on this page, and will receive an email or text notification. If you live outside the Treasure Valley, some prizes aren't practical to ship. If you win one of those prizes, you will need to provide someone local we can send the prize to.
Raffle ticket purchases can be made online here:
Share the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets with your friends and family for an opportunity to win $100!
Any Andrus family that purchases or refers ten (10) or more raffle tickets will be entered to win the $100 prize, announced on April 2nd.
