Cindy Skiles was all smiles as she received a $500 check for her winning ticket in the first drawing in the Putnam Rotary Raffle.
Skiles, who operates Teays Physical Therapy Center, has always been "first-in-line to support community improvement," said Rotarian Bob Keely. "It was entirely appropriate for something to go back to her from Rotary and her community."
A second drawing for $500 will be made on March 31st at noon at Scarlet Oaks Country Club. A final drawing also at Scarlet Oaks at noon on April 14th will be made for a cash award of $2,000.
Proceeds from the raffle will go to the support of several Rotary community service projects, both locally, in the region and internationally.
Most project support has come directly from club members through "sweat equity" and personal financial giving. The only major fund-raising project heretofore has been a golf tournament sponsored once a year.
"It's a win-win opportunity," said Project Director Chet Marshall. "A ticket lets you give for community service and at the same time gives you a good chance to win."
A few tickets are still available through members of Putnam Rotary.
