Proceeds of the Half Pot will benefit the VU Jasper Scholarship Fund to include one year of full tuition, a $500 book stipend, and a laptop for local scholarship recipients. Proceeds will also help to provide protection for non-profits involved in the Strassenfest in case of another catastrophic event and a strong financial base for the continuation and growth of the Strassenfest and the Jasper community.
“The initial idea behind adding a half pot event was to expand upon our mission to support causes in the Jasper community and to begin a rainy-day fund for non-profits,” says Half Pot Chair, Kim Lottes. “VU Jasper plays a huge role in the Jasper and Dubois County community and we are excited to have the opportunity to make a big impact by donating a large portion of the proceeds to their Scholarship Fund. “
Similar to another successful area half pot event put on by the West Side Nut Club, the Jasper Strassenfest utilized state-certified raffle software company, Ascend. Prize claim information, license number, rules, and regulations can be found online at jasperstrassenfest.org/halfpot.
