Raffle to help boost Booster clubs' budgets
Eight area high school Booster clubs are benefiting from a raffle of a 2013 Chevrolet Spark, worth more than $13,000, that so far has raised $60,000.
Pete Harkness Auto Group has donated the vehicle, and all proceeds will go to the school the buyers designate.
Money from any ticket that's not legible, or has no school indicated, will be donated to the Self Help Enterprises Endowment Fund.
Tickets are $10 each and are available at any Pete Harkness dealership or Community State Bank branch, or from any Boosters from Newman Central Catholic, Rock Falls, Prophetstown, Erie, Morrison, Milledgeville, Polo and Fulton high schools.
The winner will be announced at a chili cookoff that starts at 11 a.m. Jan. 26 at Pete Harkness Buick, at state Route 40 at Lynn Boulevard in Sterling. The winner will be announced at 1 p.m.
So far, about $60,000 has been raised, Harkness marketing director Kristina Kaecker said.
