Centre for Young Parents Playhouse Raffle returns in 2024

The Centre for Young Parents’ annual Playhouse Raffle is back in a new way for 2024.

Recently, the Centre for Young Parents and the Grande Prairie Construction Association announced a new partnership for the raffle after the previous sponsor pulled out last year.

According to CYP Community Engagement Coordinator Heather Tilapaugh, the revamped raffle hopes to get five local businesses involved in building playhouses before the raffle in a friendly competition of bragging rights. She says the raffle is a critical fundraiser for the centre, and helps the community significantly.

“We get these playhouses built and then the community can purchase raffle tickets and then they have a chance to win one of the playhouses,” she says. “It’s a fundraiser so it brings in those extra funds that help support the programs that we offer here at the centre.”

Tillapaugh adds that the competition element introduced this year should bring in even more community engagement with the organization and its clients, and could include competition categories such as “kid’s choice,” “parent’s choice,” or “judge’s choice.”

The raffle fundraiser started in 2006 and has been an annual affair ever since.
