OATS Committee Planning Parachute Fundraiser

An upcoming fundraiser for a community organization will more resemble an air raid than a traditional raffle benefit as the Scotland County OATS Committee will host a special parachute drop bingo.

A total of 490 parachutes will fall toward a 120-square raffle board to determine the winner of up to $600. The fireworks-propelled flyers will make one lucky winner happy while also help to raise an equal amount of money for the local transportation service that provides bus rides to under served residents.

The event is being planned for Saturday, August 23rd, following the Scotland County Antique Fair parade.

Tickets are on sale now for $10. Contact Levonne Simerl at 660-328-6260 or Lavaughn Ketchum at 660-465-7006 for more information.

Ticket holders will receive a number between 1 and 120. The winning square will have the most parachutes land on it. In case of a tie, the prize will be split between the winning numbers.
