PHS holds Big Red Raffle

The Peebles Athletic Boosters hosted their Annual Big Red Raffle Saturday evening, Oct. 3 at Peebles High School. The popular fundraiser which began in 1998 supports the school’s athletic programs.

The big winners of this year’s raffle were: Ann Shelton, $10,000; Stacy Camp, $1,000; Robert Wilson, $500; Christina Farmer, $250, and the Peebles Post Office, $150. In addition there were 15 people who won $100 or more.

Since its beginning 17 years ago the raffle has given away more than $200,000 in cash prizes.

The booster club also raises funds through the sell of concessions at sporting events, “All of the work we do would not be possible without the support of the fans and the community,” said David Sims, Booster Club President.

The Athletic Booster’s successful fundraising efforts provide much needed equipment and materials to PHS athletic programs. This year they have contributed funds for the purchase of new bleachers for the soccer field. They have also provided mats for the cheerleading squad, bags for the golf team, and pop-up tents for the cross country and soccer teams. Additionally, the boosters sponsor the broadcasts of volley, basketball, and baseball games on C103 Radio in West Union, and provide pep buses to all district and regional basketball games.

This year the club will also purchase personalized banners for all seniors participating in a sport, and award scholarships to graduating student athletes.

According to Sims, “We are always looking for new opportunities to help and support the athletes of Peebles High School in any way we can.”

The Big Red Raffle dinner was catered by The Scioto Ribber. Members of the Boys Varsity Basketball team provided table service.

The Peebles Athletic Booster Club meets the second Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Peebles High School and everyone is invited to attend.

Hundreds of people turned out Saturday evening for the annual Big Red Raffle at Peebles High School.
