For 16 years the lobby of Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital has been home to Marisa Jimenez’s Poplar Ridge Christmas Raffle. This year, her fundraiser is the biggest yet, with well over $12,000 of charitable donations (over 200 prizes in all) made to the cause. All proceeds are directed to residents of Poplar Ridge. Jimenez points out there are so many prizes, she doesn’t have room to display them all. Tickets are available ($2 each or three for $5) in the hospital lobby Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. The raffle closes Dec. 15 at 3 p.m. For more photos of the prizes visit the Trail Times Facebook page.
