In response to COVID-19, Benefactors of Red Rock State Park is moving their outdoor classroom raffle online. Through May 25, Benefactors will be selling raffle tickets at their website


This raffle will raise funds for building a new outdoor classroom to replace the one that washed away in the flood a year ago. The new classroom, to be built on safe higher ground, will host educational events for all ages, but particularly for young students. The Park’s School Connection Program introduces over 1,500 area students each year to the wonders of the natural world.  Since the old classroom was destroyed, the Park has lacked an outdoor classroom for this valuable educational program.


There will be two separate raffle drawings. The first will be a Fifty-Fifty Raffle with a 1st prize of 25% of the proceeds of the raffle, a 2nd prize of 15% of the proceeds and a 3rd prize of 10% of the proceeds.  The remaining 50% will go to the outdoor classroom fund.


The separate raffle will be for a number of prizes donated by local businesses. For example, you can win 2 lodging nights, tickets for local adventures, and meals at local restaurants. In addition, winners of 5 Arizona State Parks Standard Annual Passes will be drawn. A full list of prizes is available online at


Tickets for these raffles will be $5 each, or $20 for five.  The drawing will take place on May 25.  You do not need to be present in order to win.


  • Starting Thursday, March 19th, 2020, repeated every day until Monday, May 25, 2020 — all day
