Scratching for Schools


Culver High School, Cecil Sly Elementary and Cascade Middle School are some local schools are a few of several getting money from the Oregon Lottery. It’s part of a popular fundraising event that happens on Thursday in Bend. "Official Scratchers" from seven schools in Central Oregon will scratch fast and furiously for five minutes...and then keep the money from the tickets. Lottery spokesman Chuck Baumann says last year public schools across the state won more than $82,000. “Schools in the past have used it for buying equipment; whether it is computer software or hardware, field trips, artists in residents.  We’ve had a middle school up in Hood River used it to help fund a climbing wall in their school, playground equipment. What ever it is that the school may have on a wish list for, they can use that money."  The State draws the names of the school eligible for the scratch it and 75 Oregon schools won this year. Other Central Oregon schools that will participate in the scratch this Thursday are: Powell Butte Community Charter School, Seven Peaks School in Bend and the Redmond Proficiency Academy.
