NorthPark gold, that is, which is as good as cash at any NorthPark Center store or restaurant.

St. John’s Episcopal School, serving Lake Highlands and East Dallas, is hosting a fundraising raffle through March 15. Tickets are $100 each or six for $500. The winner, which will be determined by drawing at the In the Swing Golf-n-Gala at Dallas Athletic Club, will receive $10,000 in NorthPark Gold. Prizes of $2,500 gold and $1,000 gold will also be awarded.

Last year’s raffle raised more than $67,000 for the students at St. John’s Episcopal School, and we know with the support of the Dallas community we can surpass that amount in 2013,” says Leon Banowetz, raffle co-chair.

Proceeds are used for student scholarships, classroom technology, continuing education for St. John’s teachers, and after-school student activities.
