It’s time to put together baskets for the 4-H Leaders’ Association Annual Basket Raffle held at the 2021 Winnebago County Fair! We need the support of ALL 4-H clubs to make this year’s raffle a success. Anyone can donate a raffle basket! All clubs are encouraged to donate a theme basket(s) (bath/spa, date night, child-themed, holiday, sports, gardening, camping, birding, cooking, grilling, artist, etc).
Can’t donate an entire basket? Individual items can be combined with other items or placed in baskets by the Basket Raffle Committee.
All baskets must be: -In a container of some kind
– basket, tote, bucket, cooler, etc.
-Wrapped in cellophane or a clear plastic bag. Wrapping the basket will keep things clean and help ensure that the contents stay in baskets while on display at the fairgrounds.
-Include a clearly displayed card/sign listing items in basket and thanking any donors ·
-NO perishable items, alcohol or tobacco products.
- Baskets must be dropped off at the Extension Office by noon on Friday, July 23rd.
- Volunteers Needed – We need volunteers to staff the raffle display table during the fair. Take a break during the Fair inside the air-conditioned Expo Building & help support our 4-H youth!
