Greenport, NY - October 31, 2014 - Lucille Stocker of Greenport is one lucky lady! Although, Lucille had to wait until the very last ticket was drawn, she took home the top prize of $5,000 at the Greenport Rotary Club’s Annual Reverse Raffle. Only 125 tickets are sold at $150 each. Each ticket holder wins a prize thanks to the generous donations of the community, but the name that is called last gets the biggest cash prize. The evening includes a full buffet dinner for two, with an open bar for the first hour. This year the theme was “Stars and Stripes” and many attendees wore red, white and blue.

“It’s a fun night out,” states Rotary Club President, Robin Walden of Staples Monuments. “The whole community comes together and the Soundview Restaurant puts out a delicious buffet with salad, pasta and a carving station.”

Proceeds from the event benefit the many humanitarian projects of Rotary including local scholarships, literacy, polio eradication, John’s Place, Mercy Ships, CAST, Gift of Life and clean water projects around the world.
