Our Wausau Early Birds Rotary Club will be sponsoring our third annual “Twelve Days of Christmas” Holiday ticket raffle.  As we did last year, the winning ticket will be selected and announced live on WSAU News/Talk Radio 550 AM during our 12 day raffle event.  Every weekday for 12 days, starting on December 1st, the winning ticket cash prize increases by $100, starting at $100 and going up to $1200 on the last day of the raffle.

The following cash prize will be drawn each day:

The beauty of this drawing is that even though your ticket may be drawn throughout the event, it will be returned back into the drawing, giving you a chance to win again! The ticket cost is one for $20.00 or six for $100.00. 


Only 1200 tickets will be sold, and all money raised in the raffle goes right back to help people in our community by supporting our Rotary literacy and youth programs.


About Wausau Early Birds Rotary

Last year, the 55 men and women of the Wausau Early Birds Rotary provided over $20,000 to programs benefiting people locally and globally by supporting literacy and youth programs, helping children and families. We also volunteered nearly 1,000 hours of community service in the greater Wausau area to help our neighbors.  We’re able to do these projects and programs through the generosity of individuals who make our fundraising effort, the “Twelve Days of Christmas” Rotary Fundraiser, a success.
