Rickman Fundraiser 2014
Each year The Rotary Club of Franklin awards five scholarships to five deserving Franklin High School students. Each year a grand scholarship is awarded in the amount of $12,000 with four additional scholarships in amounts of $500 to $1000 dollars. The money to fund these scholarships is generated through the club’s annual fundraiser held each July from the sale of raffle tickets, program ad sales and silent auction sales. Congratulations to Russell Bowling, winner of our Rickman Raffle for 2014. This year our event was held on July 26th and in addition to the many items we had on our silent auction we also raffled off a Carribean Cruise. For the first time we kicked off the raffle at our event on July 26th and gave it away at Macon County Fair in September. Our own Mike Norris was the winner! The cruise raffle grossed over $2500! This additional raffle will also help fund our many service projects.
