1/31/17 – Over the past few years the Howell Highlander Robotics program has grown from one high school team to eight teams competing in all four levels of the FIRST Robotics organization. To support this expansion, Howell Highlander Robotics will hold a Quartermania Fundraiser Saturday, February 11 at 6 p.m. at the Howell American Legion Post.
A Quartermania Fundraiser is a cross between an auction and a raffle yet similar to bingo. Attendees purchase numbered paddles, drop a corresponding ball for each paddle into a raffle drum and then wait for the items that they want to bid on to come up for auction. When that item comes up, the bidder deposits their quarters into a jar and holds up their paddle in the hopes that their ball will be drawn. Paddles are $5 each or three paddles for $10. Items range from gift baskets to a five-night stay at any Wyndham hotel and everything in between.
Registration for Howell Highlander Robotics Quartermania will begin at 6 p.m. with the raffle starting at 7 p.m. The event will feature complimentary food. Paddles will be available for purchase at the door. For more information, please contact Portuesi at email@example.com or visit http://www.scotsbots.org/.
