HIGHLANDS – The Rotary Club held their 47th annual Chili Feast, Raffle and Auction last Saturday, and in spite of cold weather and the pandemic, a large crowd turned out at St. Jude’s social hall, and made the event a success.
Chili Feast chairman Andy Scott said proceeds were comparable to previous years, and thanked all the sponsors and the public for their support.
The top prize in the raffle drawing, a 2022 SUV from Turner Chevrolet, was won by Highlands businessman Jeremy Rosenkranz. All 700 raffle tickets were sold, thanks to a last minute purchase by a consortium of Bryan Teel, Don Hill, and David Kostka. The club thanked them for their extra effort and support. Preliminary figures indicate the event raised about $93,000, and after expenses including the cost of the top prize, the club expects to be able to use the remaining monies for scholarships and community projects. Last year the club awarded $32,000 in scholarships to 18 graduating seniors.
