Suquamish Tribe Beginning Weekly Vaccination Celebration Raffle July 9

In celebration and appreciation of Suquamish Tribe community members who have gotten their COVID-19 vaccination, the Suquamish Tribe will begin weekly prize drawings every Friday starting on July 9.

Suquamish Tribal members and their households, Suquamish Government staff, and PME employees who have received their COVID-19 vaccination are eligible to win.

Three prizes will be awarded each week. Prizes include a special gift basket, Eighth Generation blankets, and a night’s stay at the Clearwater Resort.

That’s about $500 worth of prizes each week!

Suquamish Tribe community members vaccinated through the Tribe’s Vaccination Clinic are automatically entered to win. That includes all youth who were vaccinated in collaboration with Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe.

If you were vaccinated somewhere else, all you need to do to enter is email your proof of vaccination to

Those who decide to get vaccinated can also enter by emailing in their proof of vaccination. Vaccinations are now available for free at most pharmacies.

Entries submitted by noon every Friday, or already in the drawing pool from previous weeks, will be eligible for that afternoon’s raffle.

Suquamish Tribe leaders encourage everyone who can get vaccinated to get their shots. The more people in our community who are protected from COVID-19, the safer everyone will be. Even if you’re not concerned about contracting this dangerous disease, please do it for our Elders, for our children who can’t yet get vaccinated, and those with compromised immune systems.
