There are plenty of sore arms today, as several volunteers gathered at Hollinshead Barn to scratch Lottery tickets for schools. 11-10 KBND's Julia Gray was one of the volunteers. Seven teams of four people had five minutes to scratch as many Lottery tickets as we could to find some big bucks for the schools.  "You get this excitement when everyone starts and they've got their head down and they're scratching away and then we announce that there's four minutes left and then there's kind of a little bit of a 'really?'; and then they keep on scratching, but it's a lot of fun, people are very excited. We’ve got the lottery folks here helping and cheering on their teams, 'cuz the whole goal is to scratch off as many tickets as possible." Chuck Baumann with the Oregon Lottery says over $4000 was raised for our area schools. Julia was on the team for our sister station Classic Rock 98.3, The Twins, and they were scratching for Seven Peaks School.  Our total came to $731.  Other schools chosen to receive winnings are Culver High, Powell Butte Community Charter School, Cecil Sly Elementary in Redmond, Redmond Proficiency Academy, Henley Middle School in Klamath Falls and Cascade Middle School.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
