PNA Foundation Raffle

Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association Foundation LogoWith another year of pandemic restrictions and the loss of our fundraising events, the PNA Foundation raised money through an online raffle. The kind support and donations of PNA members and friends is more important than ever.

Thank you to everyone who showed their love for the PNA Foundation by purchasing tickets in 2021.  More than 45 people purchased nearly 500 tickets bringing in $4,980.  All proceeds support the Foundation’s webinars, contests, grant programs and student projects, continuing our mission. Tickets were pulled virtually on Thursday, December 2, during the PNA Foundation Board of Trustees Meeting.
