Basket Raffle (at County Fair)

Every year for the county fair, the 4-H Leaders’ Association holds a 4-H Basket Raffle. All 4-H clubs are encouraged to donate a themed basket(s) (bath/spa, date night, child-themed, holiday, sports, gardening, camping, birding, grilling, artist, etc.) Funds raised through the basket raffle help support 4-H in Winnebago County, including county-wide programs, educational travel, camps & scholarships.

  • Don’t forget to contact local businesses or individuals. All are welcome to donate baskets to support 4-H!
  • Can’t donate an entire basket? Individual items can be combined with other items or place in baskets by the Basket Raffle committee.

Rules for submission of baskets:

  • All baskets must be in a container of some kind–basket, tote, bucket, cooler, etc.
  • Baskets must be wrapped in cellophane or a clear plastic bag. Wrapping the basket will keep things clean and help ensure that contents stay in baskets while on display at the fairgrounds.
  • Please include a clearly displayed card/sign: listing items in basket and thanking donors
  • NO perishable items, alcohol or tobacco products

Baskets must be dropped off at the Extension office by noon on the Friday before the week of fair.
