TROY — It’s the oldest rivalry in the state of Ohio, and it’s time to take the battle to the field once again. The annual football game between the Troy Trojans and Piqua Indians will take place on Friday, Oct. 28 in Piqua, and local Rotarians want to help make the matchup more exciting for everyone.
For the first time, the Troy and Piqua Rotary clubs will join forces to raise money for local programs by selling chances to win a cash prize during the game. The fundraiser is a golf ball drop, and the clubs have a goal to sell a total of 2,000 tickets before kickoff. Each ticket costs $5 and the winner need not be present to claim their prize. The winner may win up to $1,000 if their ball reaches the hole. If multiple balls go into the hole, the prize will be divided between the lucky winners. Tickets are available from members of each club, and the deadline to purchase tickets is Oct. 25. If you have questions or would like more information, contact the Troy Rotary Club at [email protected]
Troy Rotarians and the Troy Rotary Foundation support several community projects annually. During the 2015-16 Rotary year, over $23,000 in scholarships and community aid was distributed from the fund, including support for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program, Rotary’s annual Shoe Project, academic and community service scholarships, and sponsorships to summer camps at Brukner Nature Center and WACO Air Museum. The Troy Rotary Club is a member-involved, goal-oriented service club focused on socio/economic issues that have an impact both locally and internationally.
