St. Paschal School’s car raffle will provide much-needed funding

the Inland Register

(From the May 1, 2008 edition of the Inland Register)

Although St. Paschal School in Spokane Valley will close after this academic year, the school still must continue various fund-raising efforts to make ends meet until June.

One of those efforts is the June 12 raffle, with the grand prize of either $15,000 cash or a 1999 Mercedes SLK Roadster.

“Catholic School budgets are always tight and we count on our fund-raisers to keep our budget in balance,” said Richard Pelkie Sr., St. Paschal’s principal. “We at St. Paschal are very dependent on our car raffle to help pay our bills. We hope and we pray that the Catholic community in Spokane will rise to the occasion and help St. Paschal School close its books in the black by purchasing car raffle tickets or by simply sending us a donation.”

Only 2,000 tickets will be sold.

Tickets can be purchased by calling (509) 924-5090; at the school, at 2521 N. Park Rd.; or from the school’s web site at

The drawing will be held Thursday, June 12, at 10 a.m.
