The drawing is scheduled for March 18.

The prizes include: a season’s pass to Gore or Whiteface ski centers worth $999, a $550 Dagger Zydeco Kayak, a two-hour Diamond Point boat tour worth $240, a $250 gift certificate for merchandise at Bennington Furniture, a $200 cross-country ski pass to Garnet Hill Lodge’s extensive trail system, and a $100 gift certificate for meals at North Creek restaurants. All proceeds benefit the Ministry’s emergency assistance fund.
