The Del Mar College Education Society’s fifth annual holiday fundraiser will benefit Toys for Tots and the Women’s Shelter of South Texas.
For $5 students can purchase a raffle ticket for a chance to win an Xbox One “Gears of War” bundle. All of the funds raised will be split equally between the two charities.
“This a is way to help a child or family that otherwise wouldn’t get a gift,” said Alexander Heatherley, an instructor with the Education Department.
Heatherley said the club raised $1,200 in 2015 but worries they may not make as much since people tend not to carry cash as much these days.
“We would love to boost that number this year,” Heatherley said.
Students, faculty and staff finding themselves in a giving mood can find an Education Society member to purchase tickets from or they can head over to the Center for Early Learning, Room 124.
Tickets will be on sale until Dec. 6 and the drawing will be Dec. 7. You do not have to be present to win.
