Just one boat, but everybody wins….

The Boat Raffle has been a major fundraiser for the Southport Lions Club for 20-plus years, and before that it was sponsored by the Southport Jaycees.  It has become a Southport annual event leading up to the drawing at the N.C. Fourth of July Festival in Southport.   Lion Terry mentioned in his recent State Port Pilot article that ‘some have indeed been taking part in the tradition for more than 40 years.’  But while everyone would love to win the boat, many buy (give) because they are very aware it is for a good cause.  They know that by buying tickets they have a direct hand in helping the Lions Club assist more than 30 local charities and nonprofits, and provide eyewear and exams for those who can’t afford to do it on their own.

The campaign begins in April and ‘ends in a bang’ on the Fourth of July.  This year over  $22,000 is being directed to the local community.  There is no overhead or paid position.   That is because close to 60 volunteers do the job of raising funds and serving the community.
