Rotary draw raises money for charity

The Rotary Club of Nanaimo North will be holding two by-donation hotdog events to sell tickets for their annual 50/50 draw.

The first event takes place at the Chase River Country Grocer on Saturday, (Feb. 2) and the second Feb. 23 at the Bowen Road Country Grocer.

Proceeds from the hotdog sale are used to purchasing tickets for various Rotary supported charities, such as Nanaimo Community Hospice Society, Haven Society and the Nanaimo-Ladysmith Schools Foundation.

The 50/50 draw will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Mar. 19 at the Old City Station Pub during a Rotary North beer and burger event.

Tickets are $5 each and the prize is pending on the number of tickets sold. There are 4,000 tickets in total, for a potential 50/50 split of $20,000.
