For 125 years, the Rotary Club of Joliet has made a significant impact on the quality of life in the community.  Proceeds from the annual raffle enable the Club to provide charitable grants to nonprofit organizations to improve and expand facilities and purchase new equipment.  In recent years, Joliet Rotary has donated over $100,000 to support:

  • Warren Sharpe Community Center's food pantry, 
  • Boys & Girls Club for pool renovations, 
  • Cornerstone Services for accessible fitness equipment, 
  • EasterSeals for a residential home remodel, 
  • Spanish Community Center for building repairs, 
  • and Senior Services Center of Will County for the Senior Express transportation project.

We invite you to help us help others by purchasing one or more raffle tickets for $100 each.  Together, we can make a bigger impact in our community.

Winners will be drawn during the Oct. 24, 2023 Rotary Club of Joliet meeting held from 12:15-1:15 pm at Jacob Henry Mansion. You need not be present to win the following prizes:
