50-50 Raffle


President Gary Spivak had arranged for a hypnotherapist to address the Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club. Even though there was last minute confirmation by the speaker, he did not appear. The club, unmesmerized, then proceeded to hold its 50/50 raffle drawing in a reverse order.

Checks were drawn for Joe D'Arco who won fifty dollars, Claire Doane for one hundred and thirty dollars and the big winner was Kevin Reiner who won five hundred dollars. The monies that the raffle raised that are retained by the club will go to various charities that the club supports.
