booster raffle car

Emily Karraker (left), Ann Nottingham, and Drew Bosgraaf have received this year’s Shelbyville Boosters scholarships. Bosgraaf received $1000, and Karraker and Nottingham received $500 each.

Bosgraaf will be attending SIU Carbondale majoring in pre-law; Karraker will attend Lake Land College majoring in nursing; and Nottingham will attend Lake Land College as an education major with plans to transfer to Eastern Illinois University.

The Shelbyville Boosters aid the school district’s funding of extra-curricular activities. The Ram Royal Raffle is the group’s biggest fundraiser.

The Boosters raffle will feature a new 2008 Dodge Caliber donated by Boarman’s Sales and Service. Value of the car is $13,000.

“We’re trying to jump start the raffle. This will be a different interest,” said Boosters member Tammy Bosgraaf.

The car will be raffled at halftime during the last home football game October 16. There will be an early-bird drawing for a $500 gas card during the first home game on September 4.

Raffle tickets are $25 each and are available from any Booster member.

“We will have tickets at other locations later and the athletes will also sell them,” Bosgraaf said.
