Vacation raffle to benefit Keewaydin trip for CAES

Chester-Andover Elementary School students are selling raffle tickets for a seven-day Florida vacation as they continue to raise money for the biennial trip to Keewaydin Environmental camp. Julie and Jeff Hance have very generously donated a seven-night stay at the beautiful RCI – Summer Bay Resorts, in Clermont, FL, [] minutes from Orlando, Disney World, Universal Studios and more.

The accommodations have two bedrooms, two baths, full facilities, porch area and numerous pools. The approximate value for this week in paradise is $1,750.  beach clipart

Each ticket is $20, and only 300 tickets will be sold. The chances of winning are much better than playing the lottery. To reserve a ticket or find out whether to purchase one, call CAES teacher Frank Kelley at 875-2108 x130.

More info about Keewaydin is available at the Keewaydin blog.

The raffle will be held on Monday, April 1. The winner will be notified by phone and email.
The fine print:

  • The prize consists of a seven-night stay at the RCI – Summer Bay Resort in Clermont, FL. There is no cash value.
  • All other fees or incidentals will be the responsibility of the winner. The prize is transferrable for a fee.
  • The unit will be available from the fall 2013 to the summer 2014, subject to availability.
  • All proceeds from the raffle will go to the KEEC Fund.
  • Make checks payable to CAES – KEEC

Keewaydin 2014  is a weeklong learning experience for fifth and sixth graders at the Keewaydin Environmental Education Center in Salisbury, VT. Students experience living and growing in the outdoors.

Chester-Andover Elementary School has been going to KEEC for almost 40 years. Funding for this great adventure has always been a community effort, with some support in the school budget. This year, campers must raise almost $15,000.
