Raffle tickets stolen from service club

Value estimated at around $300

Raffle tickets were stolen from a Summerland charity during the Festival of Lights in late November.

Brenda Wilkinson of the Quest Society said the tickets, with a value of around $300, were stolen from the service organization’s booth downtown during the festivities.

The tickets were for a raffle to raise money for a hearing aid for a Summerland resident.

Wilkinson said the person who stole the tickets would not be eligible for the prize, since the corresponding ticket numbers are not entered in the service organization’s bin.

She also urges people not to buy Quest raffle tickets except at venues where they will be sold.

The tickets will be sold on Saturday mornings at the Summerland Credit Union and on Saturday afternoons in front of Nesters Market.
