Catholic Schools Raffle begins Friday

WORTHINGTON — The Catholic Schools Raffle is returning to St. Mary's School in Worthington, offering the opportunity to turn $5 into a brand new car or $20,000 in cash while supporting a local Catholic school.

Starting Friday, students from St. Mary's will join students from 83 other schools across Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota in selling the $5 tickets. Each ticket purchased gives ticket buyers the opportunity to win a 2018 Chevy TRAX (or $20,000 in cash), or other prizes totaling $40,000 in value. Every penny of every ticket sold stays at St. Mary's thanks to the raffle’s sole sponsor, Catholic United Financial. The St. Paul-based company provides all the prizes and promotion materials for the Raffle at no cost to the participating schools.

Tickets will be sold through Feb. 25 and are only available at participating schools. The Grand Prize drawing ceremony takes place at 11 a.m. March 7 at the Catholic United Financial Home Office in St. Paul. Raffle updates and a full list of participating schools can be found on Facebook at
