The Lake Tahoe Educational Foundation is sponsoring a fundraising raffle in its efforts to achieve Class Size Reduction in the Lake Tahoe Unified School District schools.

Jerod Haase, a men’s basketball assistant coach at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, has donated a keepsake basketball from the Tar Heels’ 2005 championship for the raffle. The ball is autographed by North Carolina players, including Sean May, Raymond Felton, Rashad McCants and Marvin Williams as well as head coach Roy Williams and the entire coaching staff. Haase is a graduate of South Tahoe High School and was a member of the South Tahoe Vikings 1992 Nevada State Championship team.

“I appreciate Jerod giving us the ball,” said Carol Haase-Hug of the Lake Tahoe Educational Foundation. “I estimate it is worth in the thousands, but it depends on how valuable the signatures become. I know it’s priceless in North Carolina.”

Tickets for the raffle are $5 each or $20 for five. For more information and to purchase tickets, call Haase-Hug at (530) 544-8167.

The drawing for the autographed basketball will take place Jan. 20 during halftime of the STHS basketball game. All proceeds will go toward class size reduction in the schools.
