|$5,000 jackpot for The Next Big Number Reverse Raffle
|Editor: Christopher Celek
||Our reverse raffle is back for a second year and we plan for it to be bigger and to raise more money than in 2010.
First, we've raised the jackpot for The Next Big Number from $4,000 to $5,000.
Next, we increased the number of tickets available from 125 to 150.
And, we've created lots of opportunities for businesses in our community to help us send kids to college and support Rotary International's drive to end polio worldwide.
It's going to be another great night on Saturday, jan. 29, 2011. Please plan to join us. We need every member of our Rotary Club to help that night.
|Our first reverse raffle in January was fun and successful, helping us raise nearly $7,200. We'll repeat many of the features that worked so well, including the heavy hors d' oeuvres, beer and wine and the silent auction as well as the same location at Four Bridges Country Club.
Ticket information for 2010 ticket holders was distributed on Oct. 26. They will have until Nov. 21 to renew their ticket numbers for 2011. Remaining tickets will go on sale to the public in December.
Every member is asked to help us identify businesses that might be interested in sponsoring the reverse raffle. Information about sponsorships can be downloaded from our website here.
The 2011 reverse raffle brochure for you to share with business partners as well as family, friends and neighbors, can be downloaded from our website here.
