CRANBERRY, Pa. – Four local YMCAs are preparing to bring the community together through good food, raffles, and fellowship at YMCA Camp Coffman on August 11, 2018.

Representatives of the Oil City YMCA, Clarion County YMCA, Franklin YMCA, and Grove City YMCA have been planning the event since early 2017.

The YMCA Ultimate Sportsman’s Raffle will be held on Saturday, August 11, 2018. Gates open at 2:00 p.m. Devil’s BBQ of Brookville will provide the food for the event. The menu includes tender smoked turkey, BBQ pulled pork, macaroni salad, baked beans, coleslaw, and a drink.

Beer will be served at the event for a $5.00 cup donation. Once the cup is purchased, refills are free.

Tickets for the event are $20.00. The cost of the ticket includes the meal and entry to win 36 prizes and 13 cash prizes totaling $5,000.00.

Side raffles will begin at 2:00 p.m. Raffles include a 60/40 raffle (with 60% of the total going to the winner), a large Chinese auction, ladies raffle items, and more.

Capture

Tickets go on sale on Monday, February 12 at the Clarion County YMCA, Oil City YMCA, Grove City YMCA, Franklin YMCA, Devil’s BBQ, and Maurer’s Trading Post. Only 3,000 tickets will be sold.

“You won’t walk away hungry,” said Tom Spence, CEO of the Scenic Rivers Association, “Robb Hetrick of Devil’s BBQ does an amazing job with the food.”

Hetrick’s meats are seasoned with a dry rub and will be smoked for several hours starting early Saturday morning.

“This is a very flavorful, authentic BBQ,” said Spence.

YMCA Board Member Kurtis Bell and Spence selected the meats and side dishes at a recent tasting at Devil’s BBQ in Brookville.

The goal of the raffle is to bring people together for a great cause. The YMCA is a non-profit organization that aims to strengthen the community. Everyone, regardless of age, income, or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive at the Y. No one is turned away for inability to pay.

All funds raised at the raffle will help more children attend programs like youth sports, or go to summer day camp.
