The annual car raffle brings in thousands of dollars for the school’s grad class, and because of the raffle expenses for the grad dinner and dance are now covered.

The winner of the grand prize — a brand new 2013 Civic (valued at $25,000) — was Kandace Anderson. R. Nelson won the second-place prize of a $1,000 Roblin Travel voucher and a $500 Contiki Holidays voucher, and Kirby Dale Hourie won $500 in gas gift certificates from Shell as the thrid-place prize.

Students sold $41,390 in raffle tickets. G.W. Graham’s grad takes place on June 26.
