Rotary Club of Seguin gears up to host $20,000 annual raffle plus all-you-can-eat fish, shrimp dinner
Posted on 12/6/2018 8:18:00 AM.
(Seguin) – One lucky person will be $10,000 richer this holiday season. A $10,000 VISA gift card is the top prize for this year's 29th Annual Rotary Club of Seguin Raffle Night and All-You-Can-Eat Fish & Shrimp Dinner. The fundraiser is scheduled for tonight at the Seguin Coliseum.



Rotary Club President Nate Raschke says each $100 raffle ticket gives a person the opportunity to win one of several various prize amounts totally $20,000. He says the prizes are provided through various tier levels. He says the gift cards range from the $10,000 grand prize to one of five gift cards worth $200.

"A raffle ticket cost $100 but with that one raffle ticket comes multiple opportunities to win -- in fact, 15 different opportunities to win $20,000 in VISA gift cards combined so the grand prize of that $10,000 card -- and there are several other tiers below that -- you buy one raffle ticket, but you have multiple opportunities just with that alone," said Raschke.

Along with the chance of taking home a gift card, much of the evening's highlight remains on the annual all-you-can-eat meal being provided by Sea Island Shrimp House Restaurant.

"First of all, Sea Island catering does a fantastic job and it's all-you-can-eat fish and shrimp. There's dessert. There's sides. It's pretty delicious and so the meal ticket is $15 and even better yet, that meal ticket will actually enter you into an additional raffle opportunity. So hold onto your meal ticket stub because you will be entered into a chance to win a $500 Visa gift card with that purchase alone," said Raschke.

Unlike the last few years, the all-you-can-eat meal will not be included with the purchase of a $100 raffle ticket. But again as Raschke mentioned, each meal ticket earns you an additional chance at winning a $500 prize.

Raschke says there will be other multiple ways to be a winner during tonight's fundraiser.

"The silent auction -- a pretty standard format with bidding. One of the items that I'd like to highlight is we have a package of four San Antonio Spurs tickets that are being auctioned off. Another item that we are raffling off and this is a separate raffle but we are raffling off a brand new Apple Watch 4 with both cellular and GPS capabilities so state-of-the-art holiday item there and then there's a Whiskey Wagon and so that's always a fun hot demand item and it will be a wagon full of pretty much all the booze you need for a year. It makes for great gifts but also you won't be needing to stop by the store anytime soon so you can stock up with just a $20 raffle ticket purchased right there,' said Raschke.

Raschke says of course, all proceeds raised from the event go back to supporting the community.

"That raffle ticket really is what helps drive our fundraiser success and what leads to our ability then to subsequently give back to the community in the form of scholarships and grants to non-profits that serve Guadalupe County," said Raschke.

Live music will also be provided tonight by local band Tin Roof.

Raffle tickets can be purchased from any Rotarian, or at the Seguin Area Chamber of Commerce Office. The raffle night gets underway at 6 p.m. today, Dec. 6 at the Seguin Coliseum.
