June 3, 13th Annual BRCS Raffle

13th Annual BRCS Raffle Event

June 3, 2017

Kingsley Fly Festival

This is our main fund raiser.  All the funding for the BRCS and its many
cleanup projects comes from this raffle.  We share our raffle with our cleanup

partners and we also use this money for the TAPC/BRCS toilets and totes
project which has been ongoing for four years.  So, when you use the
toilets at the BBL, Shumsky and Bietner and on the Betsie River in
Thompsonville, buy a ticket next year.

The raffle was a major success again this year.

Thank you to all who bought tickets this year.  We do use the money wisely and
as an all-volunteer non-profit, every dollar goes to clean the river.

The first prize winner was Janet Thomas of Grand Blanc.  Her winning
ticket was sold by Claudia and Jim Keglovitz of Honor who are major
supporters of the BRCS and the Benzie Conservation District.

Congratulations Janet Thomas !!!
