Annual Car Raffle


You are invited to participate in the
Warwick Rotary Club’s annual Car Raffle!

With a one in 600 chance of winning, the Warwick Rotary Charities car raffle is once again catching the attention of residents – especially those who have spotted the 2020 Hyundai Tucson SEL SUV parked in front of the Greenwood Credit Union provided by Tarbox Hyundai. Tickets are $100 and may be purchased at GCU, the Warwick Beacon and from members of the Warwick Rotary Club. The drawing will be held April 7, 2020 at the Rotary Gourmet Gala to be held at the Radisson Hotel. There was no shortage of good humor when Rotary club members were joined by dealer president Ed Tarbox and the president and CEO of GCU, Frederick Reinhardt, at the car for a promotional photo.
