It’s a fundraiser that may sound easier than it actually is; scratching off lottery tickets to raise money for schools. That's what is happening this Thursday in Bend. “It's funny because after having done this for 15 years, you're able to step back and watch things happen.” Lottery spokesman Chuck Bauman has watched a lot of scratching over the years, and the five minute fundraiser where a team from each school scratches tickets is tougher than it sounds: “We give them really good ice scrapers. People do get sore:   “Oh! how much longer?” Several schools in Central Oregon were picked in the drawing. They are Culver High, Cecil Sly Elementary in Prineville, Powell Butte Community Charter School, the Redmond Proficiency Academy and Seven Peaks and Cascade Middle School in Bend. Bauman says tight school budgets make this lottery scratch it event definitely worth a few sore arms.
