Friends of the Parks Basket Raffle

The Friends of the Darke County Park District are once again running their annual basket raffle this summer to culminate at Prairie Days on September 26th and 27th.

Local clubs donated baskets full of goodies to raise money for the Friends of the Parks. Baskets include one from the Darke County Birders, containing a bird house feeder, a Lee Cable collector’s plate, a hand carved cardinal, and more. The Darke County Photo club donated a basket full of supplies including a Cannon Power Shot camera, a camera bag, a flexible tripod, and much more for you photography needs. The Old Thyme Gardeners basket contains two great gardening reference books, gardening gloves, a $20 gift certificate to Hannah’s Garden Center, and too many more things to list. The Darke County Canoe and Kayak Club donated a basket that any tea aficionado would love. This basket includes a Ginger Lily tea pot, kitchen towels, assorted teas, and more. The Tecumseh Trail Phonex Committee donated a fabulous kitchen themed basket with a Kitchen Aid food chopper, a Kitchen Aid two speed hand blender, a dish drainer, and more handy tools around the kitchen.

All of the baskets are on display at the Nature Center at Shawnee Prairie (4267 St. Rt. 502 West,) and tickets are available for purchase Monday through Saturday, from 9:00am to 5:00pm. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5, and all proceeds go to the Friends of the Darke County Park District.

The drawing will be held at Prairie Days on Sunday, September 27th; you do not need to be present to win. Help support the Friends of the Darke County Parks, and win an awesome basket full of goodies!
