Rotary event to raise funds for scholarships
Club members are selling raffle tickets for a $10,000 grand prize to raise funds for the Salisbury Rotary Scholarship Trust.
Since the club started giving $1,000 scholarships in 1988, it has awarded them to more than 280 students from area high schools.
The club awarded 24 scholarships in 2010.
This spring, the club received 100 scholarship applications. The scholarships are based on academics. Applicants must live in Rowan County and plan to go to college.
The club will hold its raffle and gala dinner May 17 at the Salisbury Station. The $100 tickets include dinner for two and can be bought in advance from a Rotary member. The grand prize in the reverse drawing is $10,000. Gift certificates and merchandise worth $2,000 are also given as drawing prizes.
