Newport Area Chamber of Commerce to host 3rd Annual Pot ‘O Gold Fundraiser

The Newport Area Chamber of Commerce will host the Pot ‘O Gold fundraising event on Saturday, March 14 at the Newport Country Club where someone will win $10,000.  Only 100 tickets will be sold for this exclusive event.  Tickets are $200 each and includes entry for the ticket holder plus one guest per ticket, complimentary beer and wine until 9 p.m., heavy hors d’oeuvres, music provided by Any Events and a chance to win $10,000.

The Pot ‘O Gold ticket holders will be entered into a reverse raffle where ticket numbers will be eliminated throughout the evening until there are three finalists remaining.  Any ticket holder that has been previously eliminated may purchase “second chance” tickets.   One second chance ticket will be drawn as a fourth finalist.  A fifth finalist will be determined by auction for the highest bidder.  When these five finalists are determined, they may choose as a group to split the $10,000 pot.  If any one of the five declines to split, the reverse raffle continues until the remaining finalists agree to split the pot or until there is only one finalist remaining.

In the event that any of the five finalists are eliminated, the following runner-up prizes will be awarded:

$100 cash, $200 cash, a $268 TCL 55-inch TV donated by Newport Walmart, and a $350 “His & Her” package including dermaplaning, teeth whitening and haircut, color & style from Beauty Parlor & Spa two rare bourbons – hand crafted Woodford Reserve and the award-winning Angel’s Envy – donated by George’s of Newport.

The Pot ‘O Gold begins at 6 p.m.  Drawings will begin promptly at 6:15 p.m.  Tickets must be purchased in advance from the Newport Area Chamber of Commerce, 201 Hazel Street, in downtown Newport.

The fundraiser will support the programs and services of the Newport Area Chamber of Commerce, which is dedicated to promoting the City of Newport and Jackson County by cultivating community involvement, encouraging business alliances, nurturing the growth and development of new and existing businesses, and creating educational opportunities for community youth.
