Calendar Raffle

5th Annual WBLAHA Calendar Raffle

The 2019 WBLAHA Calendar Raffle results are in! Check the list to see if you are a winner!!


What is the Calendar Raffle? 

The White Bear Lake Hockey Association membership has voted to conduct our 5th Annual Calendar Raffle. The money that is raised will help support the White Bear Lake Sports Center Rink repair and expansion. It is no secret that ice shortages are an issue, therefore, we are working towards both a short term and long term solution. The funds raised from the Annual Calendar Raffle will go towards rink improvements and/or financing. 

The Calendar Raffle is a Raffle Ticket in the form of a Calendar. There are cash prizes on each day of the year from January 2020 to December 2020. Cash prizes range from $25 to $1000. An example of this year’s Raffle Calendar is posted under “Fundraising” at wblhockey.com.
