FROM THE WEST SACRAMENTO NEWS-LEDGER — OCT 24, 2012 —
A whole bunch of West Sacramento charities participated in this year’s “All Charities Raffle,” organized by the West Sacramento Foundation.
Raffle prizes included use of vacation condos, shopping sprees and other prizes. Each participating group got to keep $9 of every $10 in ticket sales. The fundraiser culminated in a spaghetti dinner and prize drawing Saturday evening at Our Lady of Grace school in Southport.
Altogether, the groups raised $47,000, reports Barbara Moore of the West Sacramento Foundation.
