High-stakes raffle & golfing set for charity
A summer jackpot 50-50 raffle is being held by North Country Ministry. The tickets are $100 each and only 200 raffle tickets will be sold.
Folks who prefer to not ante up the full amount may share the cost with friends. If all tickets are sold, the cash prizes are $5,000, $3,000, and $2,000. If fewer than 200 are sold, 50 percent of the proceeds will be shared in the above ratio. The drawing will be held during the North Country Ministry's golf fundraiser event Sept. 19. Call 623-2829 for either raffle tickets or a reservation for the golf outing. The golf tournament is open for players at $85 per person and it starts at 1 p.m. The event is conducted in a four-person scramble format, and prizes are to be awarded. A set of custom golf clubs is the prize for a hole-in-one. A steak bake at the clubhouse will follow the tournament play.
