The Kiwanis Club of LBI/Manahawkin undertakes a summerlong 50/50 raffle ticket sale that due to its extended length grows to potential first-prize winnings of $8,750.

Funds raised by the club will be used for scholarships, donations to children’s hospitals, Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops, youth athletic groups, bicycle safety rodeos, breakfasts for special needs children and more. The Kiwanis mission is to serve the children of the world, one community and one child at a time.

Kiwanis of LBI/Manahawkin’s annual Summer 50/50 Raffle will sell a maximum of 350 tickets at $100 each. The payout is 50 percent of gross ticket sales to Kiwanis of LBI/Manahawkin and 50 percent divided among nine winners.

The first-prize winner receives 25 percent of gross ticket sales revenue ($8,750 potential); the second- and third-prize winners each receives 5 percent of gross ticket sales revenue ($1,750 potential); fourth prize is 4 percent of gross ticket sales revenue ($1,400 potential); fifth prize is 3 percent of gross ticket sales revenue ($1,050 potential); sixth- to ninth-prize winners each receives 2 percent of gross ticket sales revenue ($700 potential).

The drawing will be held on Thursday, Aug. 31, at 5:30 p.m. at the Ship Bottom Firehouse. Ticketholders are welcome but need not be present to win.
