Members of the Sandwich Lions Club are readying their building on the Sandwich Fairgrounds for their annual steer raffle, which will take place during the Sandwich Fair, Sept. 5 to Sept. 9.
For more than 50 years, the steer raffle has been the top fundraising effort for the Sandwich Lions Club. Fairgoers have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets in hopes of winning the top prize of a prime steer and processing under inspection at a local locker service.
The drawing will be held on Sept. 9. The winner does not have to be present to win.
All funds collected help the Lions in their support of local services such as the Open Door and Fox Valley Older Adult Services. The Lions invite the public to stop in at their building located just west of the windmill to meet this year’s prize-winning steer and to support their raffle.
