MASSENA - The winner of this years Trinity Truck Raffle plans to make a donation back to Trinity Catholic School.
The Rev. John Hunt, a retired priest who now lives in Florida, had the choice between a 2014 Dodge Ram sponsored by Blevins Seaway Motors, valued at $30,000, or $25,000 cash. The Rev. Mr. Hunt chose the cash prize, and members of the Trinity Catholic Fundraising Committee said he plans to make a donation back to the school.
The winning name was drawn following a recent Mass at Sacred Heart Church.
There were 7,000 tickets available for the annual fundraiser. They were distributed to Trinity Catholic School families and were available for sale starting Nov. 29 through the remainder of November and December. Approximately 6,700 tickets had been sold last year.
The raffle was started in 1995 to raise money for Trinity Catholic School. Money raised represents a large portion of the schools annual budget.
