LAURIUM -- The drawing for the 2013 Calumet-Laurium-Keweenaw Rotary Club Raffle will be held at noon Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2013 at the Irish Times Restaurant in Laurium. Ticket holders need not be present to win. Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased from CLK Rotary Club members.
First prize is $4,500; second prize $450; third prize $50.
Proceeds from the raffle help students from local schools who wish to pursue a technical, as opposed to a professional, career. Examples are auto mechanics, building trades and the arts.
"We're funding scholarships for non-traditional students from the CLK and Lake Linden schools for trade-based education," said Dan Dalquist, CLK Rotary member.
If you wish to buy a raffle ticket before Wednesday's drawing, contact Dan Dalquist at firstname.lastname@example.org.
