On Sunday, Aug. 7, Rotary Clubs of Langley volunteers were at the Otter Co-op promoting the upcoming Langley RibFest and selling in-person 50-50 tickets for the Mega draw that raises money for local charities.

As of that morning, with seven days to go, the jackpot was nearing the $180,000 mark.

Rotarian Robin McIntosh, with the Aldergrove club, wished every buyer good luck, noting that the draw “supports some great causes.”

Rotary is shooting for $400,000, with an expected surge in ticket sales at RibFest.

If it hit that target, it would be the biggest ever fundraiser organized by Rotary.
