The College of the Rockies’ Avalanche volleyball team is hosting a fundraiser raffle with a top prize from a different Avalanche team.

Cranbrook’s own Bowen Byram from the Colorado Avalanche has donated a signed jersey.

“That’s an exciting prize, with a local connection, that is sure to be coveted by many hockey fans,” said Cori Andrichuk, Manager of Campus Life and Athletics.

“We’ll also be offering a host of other prizes, including golf passes to local courses, a stay at Elizabeth Lake Lodge, and more.”

COTR officials said the proceeds from the raffle will pay for equipment and help student-athletes cover travel expenses.

“As we transition back to league competition after the cancellation of the 2020 – 2021 PACWEST season, our travel will look a little different,” Andrichuk said.

“Funds from this raffle will go a long way to ease this transition and offset our additional costs.”

Tickets are $2 each and only 2500 tickets will be sold. The raffle starts on Monday, October 19th and the prize draw will take place during the Avalanche home opener on November 20th.
