Rotary Updates: 
Fall Fundraiser - Draw Down Hoe Down: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3 Our second largest fundraiser for the club is the Draw Down Hoe Down. This will be held at North Shore Restaurant at Portage Golf Club.  This is a backwards raffle.  Tickets (includes the ball number, dinner and drinks) are $100 and for each number.  100 tickets are sold, 100 balls are put into the raffle drum, one by one they are pulled out.  Every 10th ball drawn wins $100 back. The last few balls left in the drum can decide if they want to split the cash money grand prize.   
Scholarship Raffle: Thank you to all Rotarians for selling all the tickets this year! Thank you to all the local businesses that donated prized for the hourly drawings. Special thanks to Crawford Oil & Propane for allowing us to sell tickets at their annual customer appreciation and to the Portage Chamber of Commerce for holding the annual Taste of Portage, another location we sold MANY tickets at and held the drawings.    
As many of you know, this our club's largest fundraiser. Proceeds go directly to the $10,000 we give away in scholarships.      ** For next year's raffle ticket selling, we plan to print tickets early in spring and will have tickets available all summer long to purchase. Look for the updated changes in spring of 2018 ** 
Taste of Portage: Annual Taste of Portage was held Friday, Aug. 25 and Saturday, Aug. 26. Thank you to our all star cook, Jeff Jelinek, who prepared and served for the Brisket Mac & Cheese and Italian Sausage Bombers. It was a great way to have our club be present in the community, have fun, and generate proceeds to give back to the community. We also sold slushies and raffle tickets from our booth. The final event at the Taste is was our grand prize drawing, which was held at 4:00 pm on Saturday.

2017 Portage Rotary's

Scholarship Winners!

Throughout the year, our Portage Rotary club raises money to invest in our future leaders. Our largest fundraiser for this is through our annual raffle ticket sales.  Each spring, the Rotary Club of Portage, provides $10,000 in scholarships to be awarded to three Portage High School seniors. It is estimated that the Portage Club has awarded close to $500,000 of scholarships over the years. The 2017 scholarships were awarded to three incredible and deserving students.  Portage Rotary is proud to be investing in their futures!

The $7,000 scholarship was awarded to Brielle Shortreed. 

The $2,000 scholarship was divided into two and $1,000 was awarded to each sibling, Emily Brost and Jacob Brost. 

The $1,000 scholarship was awarded to Samantha Smith.

Our Annual Rotary Scholarship Raffle Ticket Sales will be held this summer. Winners will be announced at the Taste of Portage at 4:00pm on Saturday, August 26, 2017.
