Reverse Raffle at Henderson Country Club Feb. 4th

The Vance County Community Foundation is hosting a Reverse Raffle fundraiser at the Henderson Country Club on Saturday, Feb. 4 at 6:30 p.m.

The event is the third Reverse Raffle held by the Vance County Community Foundation’s board of advisors. Tickets are $150 and include dinner for two at the Henderson Country Club. Each ticket purchaser gets a chance to win $5,000. Door prizes are also offered.

“This is a successful fundraiser for our community, with proceeds going into our endowment fund for annual grant giving,” said Patricia Newhouse, board chair. “We are excited that so many people have asked us when we’re having this event, and we expect to sell out of our allotment of 125 tickets. The chance to win $5,000 is a big draw. And our local nonprofits are the true winners, since our proceeds go out in grants in the coming years.”

Board members are selling tickets. Board members include Newhouse, James Edwards, Paul Harris, Fagan Goodwin, Tanya Evans, Missy Stewardson, Bebe Wester, Cece Leahy, Vanessa Jones, Brantley Pegram, Eva Brown, Kathy Caudle, Patsy Pegram, Bonnie Howell, Jon Clark and Keesha Rowan. Tickets can also be purchased at Joel Cheatham Insurance and Fidelity Bank, both in Henderson.

People who wish to purchase using a credit card can go to the Give Now! button on the NCCF website . Follow the directions to make an online donation, indicating Vance County from the drop-down menu and type “Reverse Raffle” in the special instructions box.
