Half Pot Fever Takes Over the West Side Nut Club Fall Festival
Move over brain sandwich, you too cricket suckers, the talk of the Fall Festival has been the ginormous Half Pot! For the first time in Fall Festival history, the Nut Clubbers decided to add a 50/50 Raffle, as a way to raise even more money for local charities. As Pet Parade Chairman, Jeremy Melton told us, 'We thought, churches have these all the time, with great success, so why not give it a try!' This isn't your typical half pot, with volunteers tearing tickets, and walking around the festival. The West Side Nut Club has built 4 high-tech booths, complete with real-time screens, showing the current total. That total as of Wednesday night was $163,285! A live drawing will be held Saturday, after the main parade. You don't have to to be present to win, but I will ask that we become best friends LOL! Tickets are 1 for $5, 3 for $10, 20 for $20 or 50 for $40.
