Calendar raises cash, gives prizes

The Kamloops Sexual Assault Counselling Centre has launched its first lottery calendar.

The centre has helped victims of violence for the past 30 years.

All profits from calendar sales will stay in Kamloops to help those the centre sees each year.

Many local businesses and photographers have contributed to the calendar,  from which two or three prizes are drawn each month.

For example, the Kamloops Blazers, Canada Games Pool, B.C. Wildlife Park, Treetop Flyers Ziplining, Boomers Auto, Hairitage Salon, Holistic Physical Therapy, Strong Picture Framing, North Shore Dairy Queen, Manny Tan, Kamloops YMCA-YWCA and artist Cathy Tetarenko have all contributed monthly prizes worth $100 or more.

Fifteen other local businesses and restaurants have each contributed $25 gift certificates for the monthly draws.

Each person who buys a calendar is entered to win prizes throughout the calendar year of 2013.

Photographers who contributed photos for the calendar include Kent Simmonds,  Shirley Mainprize, Kevin Morgan, Marilee Davis and Kris Dorman.

For more information, call the centre office at 250-372-0179.
