Members of the Sandwich Lions Club are preparing their building on the Sandwich Fair grounds for their annual steer raffle, which will take place during the Sandwich Fair, Sept. 8 to 12.
For nearly 60 years, the steer raffle has been the top fundraising effort for the Sandwich Lions Club. Fairgoers have the opportunity to buy 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 Sept. 12. 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 Community 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 the raffle.
