The Auke Bay Cooperative Preschool will be holding its annual "Dads on Duty" raffle on April 26. First prize is six men for six hours doing yard work, small repairs and projects around the home, plus a $100 gift certificate for supplies. Last year's winner, Delores Graver, had the dads paint her house and do lawn and yard work.
Projects from other years include building a retaining wall, cleaning out a garage, building shelves and interior painting.
The raffle is a benefit for the preschool, which is entirely funded by parent activities. Second prize is a Mendenhall Glacier helicopter tour for two from Temsco Helicopters. Additional prizes include a $125.00 gift certificate from the Travelodge, a river raft trip from Auk Ta Shaa, a beautiful Amish quilt, and more.
Tickets are $4 each or three tickets for $10 and are available by calling Stephanie at 790-3092 or Lila at 789-0905. The raffle drawing will be held on April 26 at the Auke Bay Cooperative Preschool at Chapel-by-the-Lake. You need not be present to win.
