Raffle Raises Money for Outdoor Education

$121,000 raised to pay for trips to Science Camp and other programs

With the close of this year's San Joaquin County Outdoor Education Raffle, the final tally of money raised to help take students on a scientific adventure nearly reached $121,000.

Funds raised by the raffle will pay for hundreds of students to participate in outdoor-education programs, like the SJCOE Outdoor Education program, a four-night excursion to the coastal redwoods known to generations of county students as “Science Camp.” 

All San Joaquin County schools were invited to participate in the raffle coordinated by the San Joaquin County Office of Education Educational Foundation (SJCOEEF).  All proceeds went directly to the school that sold the tickets for their Outdoor Education trip because of generous donations: Valley Oak Dental sponsored the printing of 30,000 raffle tickets and the SJCOEEF donated $5,000 in prize money.

San Joaquin County Superintendent of Schools James Mousalimas drew the winning tickets.
