GREENFIELD — With more than a dozen local nonprofits benefiting from their effort last year, two local Rotary clubs will have their second annual Steak’n Bake’n Raffle on Oct. 19.
Last year, the fundraiser netted $10,000, which, combined with a matching grant from the Hancock County Community Foundation, distributed $20,000 to the operating accounts of 14 humanitarian and charitable nonprofits in Hancock County.
That money was in addition to some $8,000 that went to fund the clubs’ own local programs, awards and scholarships.
Organizers for this year’s event, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Greenfield and Rotary Club of Greenfield Sunrise, are hoping to build on last year’s success, bring more folks to the table and help even more county organizations.
“We’re very excited about it,” said raffle committee co-chair Mike Low. “It’s gone really well, and we’re hoping for a turnout exceeding 400 and ideally closer to 500.”
