ROXBURY, NJ - Ticket sales for the 10th Annual Roxbury Rotary Club Cash Raffle and Complimentary Party are winding down, since the event takes place May 24. But those who want a shot at winning up to $6,000 still have time to get a piece of the action, said Rotarian Steve Alford.

"We still have tickets to sell to make it a sellout," he said. "We'd love to have a full sell-out. If anybody wants tickets, they should contact me immediately at my cell number (973-204-1204).".

Tickets for the event, taking place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at The Asian Diner on Route 46 in Ledgewood, are $100. The club prints only 300 tickets and purchasers will be eligible for 16 possible cash prizes with top prize being $6,000 if all tickets are sold, Alford said.

The raffle is the club's biggest yearly fundraiser. "It's the money we receive from this event that allows us to provide for high school scholarships, support the local library, give dictionaries to every third-grader in town as well as help all the other organizations in town that we support," Alford said.

The club tries to make the event enjoyable. A DJ will be playing music and participants will be able to enjoy a lot of food.

"One ticket gets two hours of all-you-can-eat and drink at the Asian diner, plus access to a side raffle that's done at the event with prizes that include two different sets of Yankee tickets, four Mets tickets, a truckload of mulch and endless local restaurant certificates," Alford said.

For an extra $25, those who buy tickets can bring a guest to the event. Last year's raffle/dinner drew about 180 people, according to Alford.

June 10, 2018

Dear Editor,
