Berkeley Rose Waldorf School has traditionally held a spring raffle to raise money for our tuition assistance program, as the parent body’s contribution to the fundraising at the school. It’s been a few long years since we were able to do so, and we are gratefully returning to the practice of sharing wonderful offerings from local business partners, all of whom weathered the COVID storm, and who have been gracious enough to offer us a prize to raffle.
Raffles are great fundraisers because the donated items, and we have over 25 of them, awaken our community to the unique, quality businesses operating in our small city but don’t require outlay on the part of our school. Below you’ll find a list of donors. Please support them if you can, and let them know you appreciate them both for making the East Bay a great, small, cosmopolitan and well-resourced place to live, but also for their generosity towards our school.
Our raffle tickets are very reasonably priced at $10 each. We ask each family at the school to sell or buy 10 tickets, but more sales are welcome and encouraged. If you’re local, stop by the school to purchase one if you’re so inclined.
Thank you to all who participated!
