If an organization was raffling off a $1.4 Million dollar home near Lake Minnetonka for charity, how many tickets would you buy?
Unfortunately, we won’t get to see this play out:
The state Gambling Control Board has blocked an Inver Grove Heights organization from raffling off a home near Lake Minnetonka worth $1.4 million.
The proposal from CLIMB Theatre would have sold $20 raffle tickets for a chance to win the house. The group that puts on plays and teaches classes at schools had wanted to raise $200,000 for itself and $700,000 for more than 400 other nonprofits.
What we’d like to know is who, when, and why, did someone donate a Million-dollar-plus home to a theater troupe specializing in childrens "education?"
The obvious upside here? Fewer kids will have to suffer through these (excruciatingly politically correct) plays:
CLIMB produces original plays and classes for K-12th grades on topics like:
Bullying Prevention, Respect, Acceptance of Differences, Global Climate Change, Self-Control, Doing Your Best, Methamphetamine Prevention, Responsibility, Harassment Prevention, Cyberbullying Prevention, Friendship.
