Charitable Giving


Rotary Foundation/NCAA March Madness Raffle

As we’ve told you during the past two meetings, we hope to raise $640 for the Rotary Foundation Paul Harris Fund and have some fun at the same time by conducting a raffle associated with the upcoming NCAA basketball tournament.  There will be 64 teams chosen by the NCAA committee to play in the tournament, and we have invited our members to “bet” on one or more teams at $10/ “bet”.  Your wager is tax deductable as a contribution to the Rotary Foundation.

We have created a board with 64 squares which represent each of the teams.  We have 14 empty squares left, so ask that you bring some money with you to our next meeting to fill out the board.  After the 64 teams are selected by the NCAA on March 16, we will randomly assign each of the teams to one of the 64 numbers on the board.  Each of the participants will then know which team they are “betting” on.  The 3rd and 4th place winners and the team losing by the largest margin (biggest loser) will receive $100 each.  The second place winner will receive $140, and the first place winner $200.  The winnings will be sent to the Rotary Foundation and credited to the winners’ Paul Harris Fellowship.  Please join us in making this a fun Club activity.
