… to assist in student success!

2021 Foundation Raffle Elk Hunt winner
ENMU-Ruidoso Foundation’s recent 2021 New Mexico Elk Tag raffle netted more than $30,000 for ENMU-Ruidoso programs and student success.

“The raffle has been a positive addition to our annual fundraising goals,” says ENMU-Ruidoso Foundation Development Director, Rhonda Vincent. “The support we receive for our fundraisers is unprecedented! We are continuing to gain momentum with our AIM HIGH Sporting Clay event in June and working parallel with our hunting raffle we are able to assist many students and programs. We have a strong base of supporters and we will forever be grateful! There is nothing like seeing the faces of scholarship recipients when they know they can fulfill their dreams and not accumulate debt in the process.”2021 Foundation Raffle: Barbary Sheep winner

The Foundation raffled an Elk and Barbary sheep tag and a variety of rifles to interested hunting enthusiasts. Only 300 tickets were sold at $100 each. A drawing for winners was held via You Tube on October 4th.

Grand Prize winner of the Elk Hunt was Tony Savage who generously gave his winning ticket to his son-in-law Jamie Cornejo of Andrews, TX; Michael Truett of Lovington, NM won the barbary sheep hunt. Other prizes included a Bergara 6.5 Creedmoor rifle, a Howa .270, and a Savage .22-250.

The ENMU-Ruidoso Foundation’s mission is to acquire private, philanthropic support to assist in creating educational opportunities at Eastern New Mexico University’s branch community college in Ruidoso. The ENMU-Ruidoso Foundation proudly assists the college in optimizing the growth and development of its student community.
