Tickets for the many prizes in the Poplar Ridge fundraiser are on sale now at KBRH

The lobby of Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital has been home to Marisa Jimenez’s Poplar Ridge Christmas Raffle for 17 years. This season, her fundraiser is the biggest yet, with well over 200 prizes donated by local businesses, organizations and individuals. All proceeds are donated to residents of Poplar Ridge. Jimenez said there are so many prizes, she doesn’t have room to display them all. Tickets are available in the hospital lobby Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. The raffle closes Dec. 19 at 3 p.m. For more photos of the prizes, visit the Trail Times Facebook page on Friday.
