One-Of-A-Kind Guitar Raffle To Benefit Cloverdale Dollars For Scholars Chapter

The Cloverdale Community Dollars for Scholars chapter was blessed to receive a one-of-a-kind guitar donated by HANK 97.1 (Indianapolis). The guitar features the signatures of over 40 country music stars, including Keith Urban, Justin Moore, Eric Church, Darryl Worley, Jason Aldean, Jo Dee Messina, and Josh Turner. For the fans of older country music, the guitar has also been signed by Tracey Lawrence, Billy Ray Cyrus, Larry Gatlin and Randy Owen, of Alabama fame.

The chapter is holding a raffle for the guitar, and the winner will be drawn on February 20, 2015, at the Cloverdale versus Eminence varsity basketball game (the winner does not have to be present to win). Second prize is $100 cash and third prize is $50 cash. All money raised will go towards scholarship funds for graduating seniors from Cloverdale High School. Tickets are $5 apiece or you can buy five for $20.

Tickets are available at the Cloverdale and Greencastle locations of First National Bank, at the Mc- Cammon Agency in Cloverdale, and at Cloverdale High School. Also, the chapter will have a booth at most of the home varsity basketball games.
