St. Rita Winterfest Committee Announces Early-Bird Raffle Winner

The St. Rita Winterfest Committee held the second-annual early-bird raffle drawing at the December 1, 2016 St. Rita Novena. The December Novena drew its usual large crowd of prayerful attendees. At the end of the evening, the crowd was treated to a bit of fun, with St. Rita's Chaplain, Fr. Richie Mercado, O.S.A, pulling the drawing's winning ticket. Paul Colson is the lucky winner of the $1,000 early-bird prize.

St. Rita Winterfest XIII Chair Julie McDevitt said raffle ticket sales were brisk in the days leading up to the second-annual early-bird drawing. Last year, all Grand Raffle tickets sold out early during the January event. This year's ticket sales are outpacing last year's, so be sure to buy your ticket. Winners need not be present at the event.

The $20,00 Winterfest Raffle grand prize and eight more $1,000 prizes are still available. Tickets can be purchased online at www.stritahs.com/events/winterfest-xiii or at school, directly from committee members or by phone at (773) 925-5029.
