Top prize for band boosters' raffle is $2,500

The Grand Haven Band Boosters are hosting their annual raffle.

Tickets are $10 and available until the drawing, which will take place at the high school spring band concert on April 30. The winner need not be present to win. 

Top prize is $2,500, second prize is $1,000 and third prize is $500. 

Money raised will support the Grand Haven Area Public Schools band program, from fifth through 12th grades. Money is split evenly between White Pines Intermediate School, Lakeshore Middle School and Grand Haven High School. 

Last year, the high school used the money to purchase new band uniforms, while White Pines purchased two new marimbas and repaired several older instruments. 

Tickets can be purchased by contacting Krista Rensland, vice president of the band boosters, at 616-581-6589 or emailing [email protected] 

Tickets will also be on sale at the Swingin’ Jazz concert, which is open to the public and takes place Feb. 24 at the Grand Haven Community Center. The cost to attend the concert is $5.
