The Rotary Club of Wellington held its annual Kids Count Raffle on Thursday, April 13 at the Wanderers Club. Club members sold all 300 of the $100 tickets, with member Tom Carreras selling more than 60 tickets.
The $5,000 cash prize was sponsored by the personal injury law firm of Lesser, Lesser, Landy and Smith. This sponsorship allowed the entire $30,000 raised by the raffle to be used for initiatives to help local children. “It is a great, feel good project,” said Mickey Smith, chair of the club’s raffle committee, “and who doesn’t enjoy a raffle?”
Mayor Anne Gerwig gave her “State of the Village” talk to the club and drew the winning ticket. Those interested in learning more about the club can visit www.wellingtonrotary.org.
