The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Clinch Valley will hold its annual Reverse Raffle on Saturday, October 7, at 6:30 p.m. This year’s event will again be hosted and catered by the Oak Ridge Country Club, a press release said.
The Oak Ridge Country Club’s renovations to their pool and outdoor bar have created a great space for entertainment, the press release said.
“By having the event a little later this year, we hope to take advantage of the outdoor spaces, cooler weather, and phenomenal fall views,” said Boys & Girls Club Chief Executive Officer Jennifer Pettyjohn.
This year’s jackpot is again $10,000, the press release said. Numbers will be drawn throughout the evening and the last number on the board wins. For $100, the evening will include one chance in the raffle drawing and admission for two adults to the live gaming, dinner, drinks, and music event. Extra chances will be available for purchase that night, the press release said. You do not have to be present to win if you’re not available on October 7.
“This event is one of our most anticipated and largest fundraisers,” said Adam Wilson, Boys & Girls Club Chief Operating Officer. “These dollars support programming expenses in both of our Clubs so we can continue to serve every child that needs us. We’ve had a great year. New staff, facility improvements, and an increase in enrollment mean we need community partners more than ever!”
So far, the Reverse Raffle is sponsored by Strategic Consulting Solutions Inc., Roane County Anti-Drug Coalition, UCOR, and Larry and Marie Kornacki, the press release said. Sponsorship packages are still available, and they include event entry and recognition opportunities, the release said.
For more information, sponsorship or tickets, send an email to [email protected] or call (865) 244-6073. Tickets can also be purchased from any board member or staff. This is a State of Tennessee approved Charitable Gaming Event, the release said. You must be 18 to purchase a raffle ticket and 21, with identification, to attend the event.
Proceeds from this year’s event will help the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Clinch Valley to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
