April 19, 2017TILTON — The Tilton-Northfield Rotary is holding a "Golden Ticket" fundraiser this spring and summer, an exciting opportunity for one lucky ticket holder to win a whole lot of money that will also benefit nonprofit organizations both locally and around the world.
Rotarians said that the tickets are selling for $100 each, with a limit of 200 tickets available. As a 50/50 raffle, the ticket pulled in the drawing later this summer will reward someone with half of the sales, while the other half will benefit groups like Every Child Is Ours, a nutritional food program for local children in need of assistance, as one of their local initiatives.
"The money will also support our efforts to fight polio worldwide and bring water to Honduras," said T-N Rotary President Barbara Blinn. "Lastly, it will support the efforts of Winnisquam Regional High School's InterAct Club to provide Shelter Boxes and Disaster Relief around the world."
Through Rotary International and its junior partners in InterAct, Shelter Boxes provide temporary shelter, pots and pans, blankets, and hope for those caught up in emergency situations like natural disasters, war and drought.
Should all 200 Golden Tickets be sold, the winner of this fundraiser will walk away with $10,000 and the other half of the money will then benefit this year's targeted causes of the T-N Rotary organization.
To take part in this unique fundraising event, people can purchase a Golden Ticket at Onions Restaurant and Pub or Camaro Heaven, each located in Tilton. Tickets are also available through any member of the Tilton-Northfield Rotary.
For more information, interested parties are asked to contact Rotarian Allan Powell of Onions Restaurant by calling 286-7774, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Even if you don't win, it's important to remember that you're contributing to a great cause," said Rotarian Chuck Drew of Camaro Heaven.
The winning ticket will be drawn on August 10 during the T-N Rotary's annual charity golf tournament at the Lochmere Country Club on Route 3 in Tilton.
