The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Clinch Valley will hold its annual Reverse Raffle on Saturday, July 30. The fundraiser will start at 6:30 p.m. July 30, and it will be hosted and catered by the Oak Ridge Country Club, which is completing renovations to its pool, outdoor bar, and entertainment area, a press release said.
“We are so excited to have the Raffle at the Country Club this year,” said Jennifer Pettyjohn, Boys & Girls Club chief executive officer. “It is just the perfect venue for this fun and casual event, with the best views in Oak Ridge!”
This year’s jackpot is again $10,000, the press release said. Numbers will be drawn during the evening on July 30, and the last number on the board will win.
For $100, the Reverse Raffle evening will include one entry into the raffle drawing, and admission for two to the live gaming, dinner, drinks, and live music event, the press release said. To keep the fun going, artists TRUK will be playing live on the new patio, and consolation prizes will be randomly awarded to losing raffle numbers by guest emcees. Not available on July 30? No problem. You do not have to be present to win, the press release said.
“Fundraising events like the Reverse Raffle are so important,” Pettyjohn said. “These funds support programming expenses so we can continue to serve every child in our community that needs us!”
Programs like Money Matters that teaches basic earning and budgeting skills, Triple Play that gets members moving and offers nutrition curriculum, and Smart Moves, which teaches resistance training and helps youth make better choices when faced with peer pressure and at-risk environments, the press release said.
So far, the event is generously sponsored by Roane County Anti-Drug Coalition, Strategic Consulting Solutions Inc., Barr Technical Services, Enrichment Federal Credit Union, Information International Associates Inc., UCOR, and Board Member Fred Barry, the press release said.
Sponsorship packages are still available and include event entry and recognition opportunities.
For more information, sponsorship, or tickets, please email [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 press release said. You must be 18 to purchase a raffle ticket and 21, with identification, to attend the event.
Boys & Girls Clubs of the Clinch Valley strives to enable all young people, especially those who need them most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens, the release said.
