080713 61st Annual Bristol Rotary Club Penny Sale (240)

BRISTOL — The Bristol Rotary Club will hold its Annual Penny Sale on Thursday, August 8 at 6:30 p.m. at the Newfound Memorial Middle School on Lake Street in Bristol.

Now in it's 61st year, The Rotary Penny Sale is one of New Hampshire's longest running annual fundraisers. Last year alone, the Bristol Rotary Club raised more than $9,000 for the scholarship fund for local youths in the Newfound area seven-town district.

The Penny Sale works as follows: there are 3 prize rounds throughout the night offering 100 ( or more ) prizes in each round. Rotarians sell tickets for $1 each prior to each prize round. If a person's ticket is drawn, they win a prize and their ticket goes back into the raffle drum to be eligible to win again and again. The more tickets a person buys, the better chances they have being a winner. There will also be grand prizes at the end of the three rounds, of which anyone that purchased a ticket is eligible to win, including a Kindle Fire Bundle, Picnic Table from RP Williams, Mountain Bike from Rhino Bike Works, Scratch tickets from Shackett's Store, Bristol Shop & Save Super Gift Card, Home Heating Oil from Dead River Company, and cash.

A 50/50 raffle to Benefit the Bristol Community Services, a 100 sweepstakes tickets to benefit the Tapply Thompson Community Center Summer Scholarship Fund, and a Silent Auction to benefit Rotary Charities will also be held. Food & refreshments will be on sale.
