Time Running Out, Have You Got Your Tickets?

The Rotary Club of Chatham with Hummer

Less than 30 days remain to purchase your ticket to win a Limited Edition 2005 Hummer H2 SUT and cash prizes totalling $19,000 ($10,000, $5,000, $2500, $1000, and $500).

The draw will be done in reverse order $500 to $10,000. The five cash winner’s tickets will be returned to the drum, the drum will then be given a final tumble and the next ticket drawn will win the Hummer.

“Remember, September 5th is the deadline and it’s fast approaching,” says Leon Bremner, co-chairman of the Rotary Club of Chatham’s “Hum-Dinger of a Project.”

The club in Chatham wanted to do something spectacular to help celebrate the 100th Year Anniversary of Rotary International.

“The attention has been fantastic,” says Ross Hartlen, Project Manager. “The Hummer gets a lot of attention wherever we go.”

So far 115,000 people have viewed the vehicle. If you haven’t had the opportunity to see it, there’s still time.

This fundraising endeavour will raise money for local projects helping seniors, disabled people, and students.

In the past the Rotary Club of Chatham has supported undertakings like the Miramichi Life Line emergency telephone system for seniors or disabled people, the purchase of critical new equipment like the first CT Scan unit for Region 7 Hospital, scholarship programs at James M. Hill Memorial High School and much more.

As part of this year’s fundraising endeavour the club has also committed $100,000 to the French Fort Cove Eco-Centre, a landmark tourist attraction that will showcase Miramichi’s history and culture while promoting education and environmental awareness.

On Saturday, August 13, the group will be at Cafe Central in Lemeque, NB, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. On Sunday and Monday, August 14 and 15, they’ll be at Place Caraquet from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on both days. And stop by the Farmer’s Market in Fredericton on Saturday August 20th from 6:30 a.m. to 12 noon.
