Tickets Still Available For Reverse Raffle Fundraiser


With only several weeks remaining, the Rotary Club of Lexington Lunch is working hard to pack a crowd for its club’s first fundraiser, a reverse raffle, to be held on Saturday, March 25, at the Natural Bridge Hotel and Conference Center from 6 to 9 p.m.

Unlike, a typical raffle, the last ticket drawn wins a grand prize of $10,000.  For a $100 ticket donation, area residents have a one in 300 chance of winning the $10,000.   A ticket includes a dinner for two and two drink tickets.  Cash prizes will be awarded throughout the evening.  One does not need to be present to win the big prize.

Door prizes will also be drawn and it’s not too late to donate a door prize or consider a $250 sponsorship.  All sponsors and companies that donate door prizes will be recognized in an ad in the newspaper and listed during the event. 

Area residents can also reserve a table by getting a group of people or company colleagues to attend the event. The photo fun booth will have lots of different props from military hats to fox fur accessories to Easter crowns. 

Proceeds from this event will help the club “unlock doors” for projects for people with disabilities, child literacy, seniors, community and international service.

Call (770) 714-6206 or visit to purchase a ticket or reserve a table.
