ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Some Lee County High school youngsters used the huge crowds at Mardi Gras to help raise money to send them to Scotland.

The Lee County High drama department have been invited to attend an arts festival in Scotland.

The group walked up and down broad yesterday selling raffle tickets for a dollar, those who bought it had a chance to win a mac book pro and $500 of gas or groceries.

They're trying to raise close to $6,000 per person to send 11 students and an adult to the Scotland festival.

"It's working pretty nice so far we're walking up and down the streets, I'm riding the unicycle AJ is on stilts trying to get as much attention as we can because it's a big opportunity," said Rab Davis, Senior.

They also sold water and soda at Mardi Gras.

The drama department has until August to raise the money.
