Tolko industries has built an all wood garden shed with cedar panels to raffle off, with all proceeds going to the Salvation Army.
A conservative goal would be to raise $3,000 for the Salvation Army said raffle organizer Shannon Smith.
The money will be going to the food bank and kitchen program at the Salvation Army.
Although the food bank has given out fewer hampers than usual in the first quarter of this year Cpt. Randy Kadonaga said that the need is still there.
The Community Kitchen Program teaches people how to become more self-sufficient through gardening, preserving and cooking foods.
“The money is going where we need it,” Kadonaga said.
The garden shed will be featured on the Tolko float during the parade on a safety oriented and bright future themed float.
Tickets are available at the Tolko regional office until Thursday this week, and and will be sold at the Street Party on Saturday and throughout Stampede Weekend at the Stampede grounds.
Tickets are $5 and the draw will happen during Sunday’s Stampede performance.
