POLSON — Polson Dollars for Scholars provided 45 Polson High School graduates and alumni with $55,000 in scholarships in 2015. The organization has given out $216,150 for Polson graduates in its 10-year history.

As a fundraiser, Polson Dollars for Scholars is offering people a chance to win a trip a month. 

The proceeds from the raffle will benefit students who graduated from Polson High School. 

Former Polson teacher Sandy Denesen won the October trip when her name was drawn at the Polson Pirates/Frenchtown Broncs football game. Denesen won a one-night stay at a Missoula hotel plus four tickets to the Oct. 24 Montana Grizzlies vs. North Dakota State football game.

Raffle tickets are $25 apiece or five for $100. 

For more information or to find out where tickets may be puchased, go to Polson Dollars for Scholars Facebook page.

For the first 11 drawings, the winning ticket will be removed for future drawings. All tickets, winning tickets included, will be entered in the grand prize drawing for the trip to Disneyland, according to Ryan Gage, a member of Polson Dollars for Scholars.

Gage brought the fundraising idea from Cut Bank, where it’s been very popular.
