Vipers 50 50 Raffle - 30 Dec 2022
Dec 31, 2022
Vernon Vipers Executive VP Todd Miller put game sponsor Silver Star Mountain Resort (SSMR) together with Silver Star Rotary, to run a Dec 30th 50/50 Raffle in support of Vernon’s Salvation Army Food Bank. SSMR pledged to match our Rotary club’s portion of the proceeds. They also found another matching sponsor through the Community Foundation of North Okanagan. The holiday season game drew a larger than normal crowd, including numerous out-of-town visitors bussed down by SSMR; plus the Vipers won their game, so fans were in a generous mood. Our club ticket sellers were joined by several SSMR staff. Every last ticket was sold. The 50/50 winner took home a prize over $1,500, so the Food Bank will soon receive their cheque for over $4,500! Shown L-R are Silver Star Rotary President Calvin Reich, winner Wendi Glinsbockel, Silver Star Mountain Resort’s Ginny Scott, & Calvin’s father Sam, who sold the winning ticket.
