One ticket is $10.00 or 6 tickets are $50.00. Need not be present to win. Purchase your raffle tickets on-line or tickets will be coming home with your student(s).

St. James collects money from each class to be used towards the purchase of a Class Gift to be placed in the LIVE auction to be auctioned off. Thank you so much to those families who have already sent in a donation towards the class gifts! Your generosity is truly appreciated. To make a donation please send it in an envelope to school with your student marked “Grade Class Gift” or donate online.
