annual PENNY SALE - 1st saturday in november

Suncook Valley Rotary Penny Sale
What’s a penny sale? 
A penny sale is a raffle where you purchase tickets to win prizes.  This year, we’re selling a sheet of 25 regular tickets and 1 door prize ticket for $5 or 6 sheets for $20.  Essentially, each chance to win costs pennies, thus the name penny sale.
This year we have a new format.  You’ll separate your tickets and choose to enter for the prizes you want most.  We have some amazing prizes for raffle including cash, gift cards, TV, fine jewelry, treats, toys, bicycle, food, home décor and more. All the items are perfect for you or for gift giving.
In addition, we’ll have a 50/50 raffle. In a 50/50 raffle, we give ½ of the total money raised to the winner and the other ½ goes to support the work of Suncook Valley Rotary.  Last year, the winner won about $590.  You must be present to win.
How much do tickets cost? 
Sheets of raffle tickets are $5 each or 6 for $20. 50/50 tickets are $1 each or 10 for $5. Please note: tickets are cash only.  There are several ATMs nearby if you need cash.
Do you take credit cards?
Cash only for tickets.  We can take credit cards/debit cards for food sales.
Do I have to be there to win?  
Yes, you must be present to win any of the drawings. We'll have food, fun and door prizes for everyone who joins us early. Drawings start at 5:00 pm.
