Kiwanis fundraiser

PLATTSBURGH — The Plattsburgh Noon Kiwanis Club has started its Annual K-Melt Raffle, with two changes this year.

Each person who purchases a ticket will have a shot at guessing what date the 350 lb. “K” located on the pond at CVPH will fall through the ice. One winner will be randomly selected out of those who have correctly guessed the date. The winner will receive $1,000 as does the Foundation at CVPH. The remaining proceeds will benefit local charities and organizations supported by the Plattsburgh Noon Kiwanis.

Tickets are $5 each or five tickets for $10. Tickets are available from any Kiwanian or at the following businesses: Shumway Insurance, Dannemora Federal Credit Union, the Clinton County Treasurer’s Office and Nelson’s Flower Shop. 

Tickets will be available for purchase through March 20. Contact President Kimberly Davis at 536-0934 with any questions.
