The Henderson Chamber of Commerce Big BEEF Raffle is back in Henderson this week as we enter the final month to purchase tickets at Henderson COOP and one of two chances to win a quarter of beef before the raffle moves again.
For those who havenâ€™t heard about the Big BEEF Raffle or are wondering why the Chamber is doing a fundraiser, here is a little background.
The Henderson Chamber is a nonprofit organization, so our mission isnâ€™t to make a lot of money. We want to support, grow and give guidance to businesses that are starting out, trying to grow or are looking toward retirement with the many resources and partnerships we offer. In addition, we love the community of Henderson and the residents who live here, so we also want to make fun community events that make this an enjoyable place for people to live and get involved. With all of that being said, we still need money to operate and since we donâ€™t want to charge unnecessary fees to our members and we still want to offer free activities and charge a minimal amounts for our meals and events, we have to get creative with making enough money to pay our bills. As a result, the Big BEEF Raffle and two new community events were born in 2015. More information is still to come on the new events, but mark you calendars for a Main Street Husker Tailgate Party, September 19, at 2:00 p.m and help us support local families in need at the Run Over Hunger Charity Run October 17.
Tickets for the Big BEEF Raffle will be sold throughout the summer as a fundraiser for the Henderson Chamber of Commerce. All proceeds will benefit community events organized by the Henderson Chamber. One of those events is the Henderson Farmers Market where two lucky people will win a quarter of beef August 25, so hurry to Henderson COOP now to buy your raffle ticket today.
