Every year, both the Daybreak and Noon Rotary Club’s of Zanesville team up for a fundraising project called the "12 Days before Christmas." Project Coordinator Ken Johnson, says this year, over $22,000 worth of prizes will be given away.
"The first day there will be 13 winners and each one of them will win a $50 gift certificate to Rittberger’s Meats, they’re a new sponsor this year," Johnson explained. "And then the prizes continue downward from there. Upward in value, but the number of winners goes down by one each day."
For a chance to win prizes like new tires for your car, an Ipad, Avon gift baskets, gift cards and more, you can purchase raffle tickets from any Rotarian member or by stopping by area businesses that sponsor the fundraising project. There are 97 winners and a total of 97 prizes being given away.
"The project continues to grow but we feel it’s becoming more of a community project than a Rotary project as it’s grown over the years so we’re very excited again this year to offer it to people and we just hope that they’ll seek us out and buy tickets."
Both clubs have a sales goal of $25,000. The proceeds raised will go towards a variety of projects that the Rotary Club’s support.
