Rotary Club of Comox Valley and Rotary Club of Strathcona Sunrise announce the Everyone Eats Raffle to support the work of Lush Valley Food Action Society and Comox Valley Food Bank, while also supporting local businesses that grow and sell food.

 Everyone will be tempted by this tasty draw, just dripping with delicious prizes. Tickets are $20 each, and with only 1000 tickets being sold, buyers will have a rare, 1/250 chance to win.

Savour the possibility of winning 1st Prize, which includes $1,000 worth of $100 gift cards from local restaurants such as, Il Falconé, Cumberland Brewing Co., Avenue Bistro, and more. For 2nd Prize we are dishing out $800 worth of food tokens for the Comox Valley Farmers’ Market, held in Courtenay year-round on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Plus, 3rd and 4th Prizes also offer a tantalizing selection of restaurant and food retailer gift certificates or Farmers’ Market gift tokens.

 “Covid-19 is definitely having an impact on the number of people needing the services and support of Lush Valley and the Comox Valley Food Bank and we want to do our part,” said Nicole Gavac, President of Rotary Club of Comox Valley. “Things have changed for Rotary too. We’re trying this new way to raise funds in response, so we can continue to help the growing number of residents in need,” Gavac continues.

 “The goal of the Everyone Eats Raffle is to raise $17,000 for two essential, local organizations that are working to ensure that everyone in the Valley can eat,” said John Frisch, President of Rotary Club of Strathcona Sunrise. “At the same time, the raffle will support our local food providers, like growers, food retailers, and restaurants,” Frisch said.

Lush Valley Food Action Society and Comox Valley Food Bank support people living in our community, especially during these difficult times, through food collection, food distribution, education, and other special programs.

Everyone Eats Raffle tickets are available now at comoxvalleyrotary.ca/raffle. The draw for this gastronomic raffle will take place live à la Facebook at Forty Knots Winery on October 10th at 1pm.

 Don’t miss your chance to partake! Because, when Everyone Eats Everyone Wins.
