The winning ticket was drawn Aug. 4 at the Centralia College Foundation office. A total of 324 tickets were sold garnering $8,110. The funds will be split between a 2014-15 scholarship and the Dave Sherwood Endowment.
By winning the raffle, Jaramillo has the opportunity to hunt on TransAlta land for a single bull elk, three point minimum, during the upcoming Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife’s modern rifle hunting season.
The Elk Hunt Raffle began four years ago to honor TransAlta employee Dave Sherwood, an avid hunter who died while hunting elk in the east county area. TransAlta offered the Elk Hunt Raffle to the Centralia College Foundation to honor Sherwood’s memory. The raffles have been so successful that a Dave Sherwood Endowment has since been created to ensure a sustainable source of scholarships for the college.
Dave’s wife, Sue Sherwood, noted that she is very grateful to TransAlta for continuing this opportunity to remember Dave.
“I am grateful so many students will benefit from the proceeds in his memory,” she said.
