The Bristol Rotary Club Penny Sale will be held on Au- gust 12th at 6:30 PM at Bristol High School, so start feeling lucky! With tickets only being one dollar, one ticket gives you a hundred chances to win some awesome prizes from local busi- nesses. The penny sale consists of three rounds; the red, white, and blue round, and each round has one hundred prizes. When your ticket is called, and you claim your winnings, someone will come out and run your prize to you, and the round will keep going. Since there will be three rounds on top of a silent auc- tion, the Rotary Club has about three hundred and fifty amazing prizes to give away on this fun- filled night! People are welcome to write their bids on those prizes for the silent auction, and may the best bid win!
This will be the Bristol Ro-
One Hundred Chances to Win! Rotary Club Penny Sale
tary Club’s 68th year holding the penny sale, and each year is better than the next. Leslie Dion, the incoming president for the Bristol Rotary Club and the Di- rector of the Tapply-Thompson Community Center, tells me it’s such a fun and exciting event, and they usually have about three hundred to four hundred people attend. The way they are able to lock in so many wonderful prizes is through the support of local businesses in the area. The club has an extensive list of com- panies in the area, and each Ro- tarian will take a list of different businesses and get prizes from them. As a result, the club has been able to get some fantastic prizes for the night like a kayak, one hundred and twenty-five gal- lons of fuel oil, a hundred scratch tickets for their raffle, and their grand prizes will consist of one hundred dollars! And there are
more prizes on the way! Dion tells me that they will have about five or six grand prizes for some lucky participants. In addition, businesses like Gina’s Place, Rag- ged Mountain Resort, TD Bank, and Bristol Veterinary Hospital
have donated different prizes to the penny sale! “The businesses have been so supportive,” Dion says. “There’s a lot that goes into planning the penny sale, but we want to give a huge shout out to the local businesses who come
out year after year to support us because we wouldn’t be able to do this without them.”
Most of the proceeds will go to the Bristol Rotary Club, where they contribute to their scholar- ship fund for the schools. In the past, they have donated about eight to ten thousand dollars for these scholarships and plan to do just that again this year.
