Looking Forward to the 2018 Great Rotary Raffle and Duck Race

It is time for Southtowne Rotarians to start looking forward to supporting the 30th annual Great Rotary Raffle. The proceeds from the raffle help to eliminate child abuse in Lane County. Southtowne President Elect Walt Meyer, and seven other local Rotary President Elects, evaluated 17 grant applications. They selected the following five agencies to receive Rotary Raffle funding in 2018:

  • Family Relief Center
  • Parenting Now
  • Center for Community Counseling
  • Direction Services
  • Bridgeway House

The Rotary Raffle schedule will run a month later this year compared to past years. Ticket books will be available to Rotarians in early August. As has been the case in past years, each ticket book will have contain 25, $5.00 tickets. Raffle ticket winners will be announced during a virtual Duck Race on KEZI television during the 6PM news hour on November 8th. Unfortunately the expense, and logistics, of dumping numbered plastic ducks in the Willamette River is no longer financially viable. John Pfanner, Andy Laird and Renee Yandel are currently on Southtowne’s Rotary Raffle committee. Two more volunteers are needed to help manage Southtowne’s ticket sales. Please contact John if you can make some free time in the early fall.
