A Korah Collegiate and Vocational School graduate has won this year’s Korah PTA Super Bowl Raffle. 

Sam Nicoletta’s ticket was drawn during the school’s 13th annual raffle Jan. 20. The prize package — which includes a five-night, six-day stay in a four-star Phoenix hotel as part of a trip to Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Arizona — is valued at more than $30,000. 

“We’re still in shock. I’ve been buying tickets since day one because I’m an alumni of the school, and the school is something I support,” said Nicoletta, speaking with SooToday Tuesday. “One of my kids goes to Korah, so I always support Korah Collegiate.

“When I bought my ticket I told one of my colleagues that this is a donation to the school, never thinking I was going to win.”

Nicoletta says that he and his wife are currently awaiting a phone call from the travel agent.  

“We’re trying to figure out whether we’re going or not,” he said. “Everything’s still up in the air.”

Nicoletta graduated from Korah Collegiate and Vocational School in 1978.  

“The school was wonderful to me — the experiences, the friends I still have from the school. There’s always good memories,” he said. 

Korah’s parent-teacher association raised  approximately $14,000.00 based on 4,441 tickets sold.
