Shining Rock Classical Academy will host a reverse raffle at 6:30 p.m. Friday Nov. 4, at the historic Gateway Club building.

Funds raised will directly support student athletes participating in either team or individual sports programs at Shining Rock Classical Academy, and will ensure a healthy start to what is the beginning of building an athletics program as they grow.

SRCA believes that every student should be given the opportunity to participate without the burden of costs associated with uniforms, equipment and sports meets.

This year alone, Falcon students will get the chance to participate in flag football, cross country, boys and girls basketball, swimming, tennis, golf, soccer, and Falcons on the Fly, a popular running club in its second year.

With a current student body exceeding 360 and growing each year, SRCA wants to teach kids to turn off the video games and tune up their bodies.

SRCA invites the community join them for this adult-only event for a chance to win up to a $10,000 cash grand prize. Only 300 tickets are available, so everyone has a 1 in 300 chance to win. There is an opportunity for businesses or families to purchase sponsorships.

This secures five entries into the drawing, eight attendees and signage at the event as well as on a banner at all home athletic events.

Participants should indicate on their tickets if they are willing to do a split. For example, if a person is in the final three, and all three have chosen to split, that gives each person a chance to win and split the funds.
