Winkler MCC Thrift Store has appointed a committee to take charge of their 50th anniversary celebrations. This committee has organized a raffle as one of the ways to commemorate the achievement. 

Al Ens joined the morning show to talk about how the raffle will work. Ens says he is proud of Winkler's MCC Thrift store, "We have really good managers and we have a total of 300 volunteers. A few of them work every day, some work every week, some work once a month, and others maybe two or three times a year. So it's wonderful that we can call on them if somebody is sick or has other obligations, there's others that will step in."

The early bird prize is a package of 21 tickets to a Winnipeg Goldeyes game in September, perfect to take the whole family and friends to enjoy an afternoon of baseball. Ens mentioned some of the other prizes, "First prize is a Winkler-made quilt, 68''x82'', it's called a couch quilt, and then we have a large Sterling BBQ, and we have a beautiful gift basket from Sunny Day, so you get all your favourite stuff from Sunny Day."

Tickets are 1 for $5, 5 for $20, or 15 for $50 and are available for purchase at the Winkler MCC Thrift Store.
