The Otsego Athletic Boosters will hold the "Last One Standing” Event on March 9, 2019, from 7-11 pm at the Silo Banquet Hall in Allegan. This reverse raffle and silent auction event will be the largest fundraiser for the Athletic Boosters to date. The Mission of the Otsego Athletic Boosters Club (OAB) is to provide financial, volunteer and fan support for the full range of athletic programs sponsored by Otsego Public Schools. “Our goal is to be able to pay for all of the sport participation fees for our high school athletes next year with this fundraiser” states OAB President Nicole Petty. On average 550-600 students participate in sports each year, and there is a $20 participation fee for each sport. In the past, OAB has held a golf scramble, but decided to change it up, “We really wanted to create a fun night out that everyone could attend and not limit it to those that golf,” explains Nicole.
The “Last One Standing“ is a reverse raffle where ticket holders have a chance to win up to $10,000! There are 52 chances to win cash prizes and only 500 tickets will be sold – providing some pretty nice odds for participants. Opposite of a traditional raffle drawing, here you want your ticket to be the last one drawn out of the drum to be the big winner. Best of all you need NOT be present to win. This will allow out-of-own family and friends who can’t attend the event to be able to still help support our student athletes!
Come join us for a fun night to see old friends and meet new friends with appetizers, cash bar, dancing, conversation, live entertainment from Felix and Fingers dueling pianos and some great silent auction items!
