Ridgeway, Minnesota (WXOW) - Ridgeway Community School is a small charter school which educates 92 students. That didn't keep them from raising several thousand dollars to help fund activities at the school.
On Thursday night they held a raffle where the top winners won a TV, Twins tickets, a load of cement, and load of gravel, among other prizes. The tickets sold for one dollar each. The school sold nearly 4000 of them.
Around fifty people showed up for the raffle drawing, which coincided with a barn dance held at the school in celebration of Charter School week. The money raised will go to funding field trips and other school events.
