ROTARY CLUB OF SAULT STEl. MARIE
This year’s ROTARYFEST, Take Your Pick Draw tickets are now available at lottery outlets and online at www.rotaryfest.com, just in time for Father’s Day this Sunday. This year’s draw combines exciting new prizes with one sorely missed tradition: for the first time in three years the grand prize winner will once again be called live from the stage at ROTARYFEST, The Sault’s Summer Festival!
New this year, the Rotary Club is offering its first ever fully electric prize vehicle as a grand prize option – the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, which includes a wallbox smart charger kit. “Supporting the environment is very important to our club, and is actually one of Rotary International’s areas of focus,” explained the draw’s Co-Chair, Paul Walz. “The ROTARYFEST team puts a lot of effort into reducing the impact of the festival, through initiatives such as biodegradable utensils and the recycling sorting tent. We’re very excited about this next step of offering our first entirely electric vehicle as a grand prize option.”
The second grand prize option is a 2022 Chevrolet Silverado with two 2022 Can-Am Outland Max XT 570’s and a trailer. “The recreation packages are always a crowd pleaser, and we get lots of positive feedback from the public,” shared Rod Goodall, the draw’s other Co-Chair. “We are so lucky to live in the beautiful Algoma region, and people want to get out and explore. This year we actually have two ATVs with the truck, which would be great for a family camp or an outdoorsy couple.”
The final grand prize option is $85,000 cash.
The Rotary Club is also excited to offer three bonus draws this summer for a $1,000 Soo Mill gift certificate, a $4,000 Soo Mill gift certificate, and a $10,000 Soo Mill gift certificate. All four winners will be drawn on Saturday, July 16th starting at 11:45PM.
