The raffle tickets are being printed and will start being sold next week. 1 ticket for $5, 3 tickets for $10 with all money raised being given directly to the school. Money and tickets will need to be given to Susan Hallsworth by the morning of June 21st The draw will be Tuesday June 21st.

This year marks Building Blocks 25th anniversary of providing outstanding preschool, junior and senior kindergarten programming to our children with such love and warmth. To help the school mark this anniversary, a group of Building Blocks parents are leading a fundraising raffle with the proceeds being given to the school to help with their upcoming move. As we are all aware this upcoming move came as a great shock to Mrs. Sanger, Mrs. Freer and their staff. Each day these teachers care for our “little ones” in a warm and loving way, they guide them, encourage them, cuddle and play with them. The teachers are always there for both our children and us, whenever we need them. We would like to show them our support as they take on the challenging tasks ahead of them.
We are hoping to secure the prizing by the first week of June, sell tickets to the raffle in June and have the raffle draw the week of June 20th in time for the end of school when we can announce the amount of money everyone has helped to raise for the school.
At this time, for the raffle we are seeking prizing contributors. Every business who contributes a prize will receive their logo/ business name on raffle materials as well as a write up about their business in communications to the Building Blocks community.
We would love to hear from you, if you
• Run a business and are interested in contributing a prize of $25 or more in value
• Are interested in helping to secure prizing
• Are able to help sell raffle tickets
Please contact Susan Hallsworth at susan_hallsworth@hotmail.com if you or any one you know in the community is interested and would like to participate. Please feel free to pass this information on to friends and families as who would like to help out.
Please help Building Blocks continue to give children a great start to their education.

  1. Hi there,
    I am a supply teacher at Building Blocks and I also publish my own comic books for kids. I could donate a few copies of my books as prizes.

    • Thank you! Would you be interested in autographing them too? Please can you send me an email with a description of your prizing contribution (and yourself) to include in an information leaflet to go out to all parents as we promote the prizes for the raffle. Please include estimated value. If you could send it to me by the end of this week that would be great! Thank you very much!

      • Yes I will autograph them for sure! There are 2 books and their retail value is 9.95 each so the estimated value is around $20. I will also include some information about my website and school author presentations.

        My description is:

        “The Adventures of Lollipop” set of comic books featuring 2 titles: “Lollipop’s Canada: Coast to Coast” and “Lollipop: In and Out of This World”, each signed by the author Jennifer Cuthbert. Jennifer is a local author and a supply teacher at Building Blocks.
