On Saturday, April 10, 2021, the Rotary Club of River Cities will hold our Annual Classic 5000. This time, of course, the event will be streamed virtually in order to ensure everyone's continued wellness in the face of the pandemic. The event will be held virtually from 7 pm to 8 pm.

 
The Classic 5000 is a reverse raffle in which all entry tickets start out in the tumbler. One by one, the tickets are removed/eliminated and placed in a secondary prize tumbler. Once we get down to the end, the last ticket remaining will win 50% of the money raised, up to $5,000, Woo Hoo!! Those tickets pulled out earlier which will be put into the secondary tumbler have a chance to win 1 of 4 secondary prizes which will be valued at a minimum of $100 each. These may be combination of prizes and gift cards.
 
Also, our Table of Cheer is an additional purchase raffle opportunity of $20 for a set of 20 tickets/numbers. Just prior to the final Classic 5000 drawing is pulled, we will electronically draw the winner for the Table of Cheer. It is anticipated that there will be at least $300 of beverages and beverage amenities which will go to one winner. The money raised here is not part of the Classic winnings.
 
Tickets for the Reverse Raffle are $100 each, you may purchase more than one if you want to improve your odds of winning. The Table of Cheer, as stated above, is $20 for 20 sequential tickets/numbers. You may also purchase more than one set of 20 tickets/numbers for the TOC.
 
100% of the event proceeds go to serving our communities and  people in need.
