Next to Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) with its scenes of crazed shoppers knocking each other down in pursuit of bargains, the TCCTA Raffle in the Exhibit Hall, at the annual convention, is a close second for a frenzied mashup of humanity.
At the Raffle, you can find mild-mannered librarians fighting for coveted front-row space, next to English teachers—perhaps specialists in Shakespearean love sonnets—with sharp elbows, waiting in anticipation of their name to be called.
It’s poetic in its own way—and about love. Of free stuff.
The Bible says, “Many are called, but few are chosen.” Well, at the TCCTA Raffle, if you get called, you are CHOSEN, BABY!
Below are the winners, along with their schools, and sponsors of the Raffle for 2016 in Houston. Many thanks to the generous sponsors for making the event a great success.
Please mark your calendars now for the 2017 annual convention in Austin, Feb. 23-25.
