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 23rd and 24th. 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 certificate for a 50lb bag of sunflower seeds, a National Geographic book “Birds of North America” and more. The Darke County Photo club donated a 14”x20” photograph entitled “Peony Stroll”. The Old Thyme Gardeners basket contains a chamber of commerce gift certificate, “Square Foot Gardening” book, and too many more gardening goodies to list. The Darke County Canoe and Kayak Club donated a basket which includes a $50 Dicks Sporting Goods certificate, a waist pack with water bottles and dry bag. The Tecumseh Trail Phoenix Committee donated a fabulous kitchen themed basket with a Kitchen Aid food processor, a Kitchen Aid two speed hand blender, all kinds of mixes and canned goods, and many 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 24th; 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!
