Rotary’s ‘Kids Count Raffle’ A Success

Club members Don Gross, Walter Imperatore and Mickey Smith.

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
