ZANESVILLE, Ohio- Big Brothers Big Sisters of Zanesville’s annual pep rally is just around the corner.

The annual Buckeye Pep Rally is a family friendly event for the community. The event usually takes place before the Buckeyes take on Michigan, but this year will be the Friday before Thanksgiving. The event will have a buffet, DJ, dancing, and more. This year Executive Director Jenni Masterson is excited for a big raffle.

“In fact we have our big reverse raffle where we sell only 200 tickets and they’re $100 each and there are 23 chances to win anywhere from your money back $100 up to $5000 grand prize. It’s fun because it’s drawn at the auction, but you do not have to be present to win.”

There are still some things needed to help make the pep rally a success. The pep rally will have both a live and silent auction. The organization is in need of donations for the auction.

“One thing that we really could use are some items for the auction. We have a lot that we put in the silent auction, but we’re also looking for five or six big things like experiences or tickets or something that we can auction off during our live auction.”

Proceeds from the pep rally helps support the many programs Big Brothers Big Sisters has. The organization is also in need of volunteers. For more information or to purchase tickets for the raffle, visit
