During the Prize Drawing Ceremony on March 7th, we revealed the amazing grand total raised by the 84 participating schools with a dramatic banner drop in front of our live audience.

The three top-selling schools participating in the Catholic Schools Raffle are announced in this video. Winners are determined by the amount of tickets sold per student, which gives all schools a chance to win regardless their size. Each school wins an additional $3,000 grant from sponsor Catholic United Financial.

The winner of our grand prize, a 2018 Chevy Trax SUV or $20,000 cash, is drawn during the prize ceremony on March 7th. Drawing the winning ticket is Father John Ubel of the Cathedral of St. Paul. Our master of ceremonies is radio personality “The Rookie” Matt Michalski of ESPN Radio AM 1500.

This is a four-minute long video of B-roll scenes of the March 7th ceremony for media use.
