The Kiwanis Day Care Center in Huntington announced Monday that it is selling raffle tickets this week for a chance to win a Harley Davidson motorcycle.

The tickets are $20 and the proceeds will go to the day care.

The prizes include a $16,000 Harley Davidson package from Charlie’s Harley-Davidson for the grand prize, $1,000 for second place and a $500 package for third.

All proceeds made from the raffle will go to the Kiwanis Day Care to accommodate the needs of children and faculty including playground enhancement and other resources.

Denise Pittenger, member of the board of directors for Kiwanis, said the day care center serves a vital purpose in the children’s early years.

“I am passionate about the kids,” Pittenger said. “Kiwanis is an organization that is all about the children and having an opportunity to be with kids because I am a former school teacher. Kiwanis is really moving the kids from the instrumental years of learning from the baby room until they go into the public or private schools.”

Tickets are sold 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Friday at Kiwanis Day Care and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday at Bottle & Wedge in Huntington.

The goal for the Kiwanis Day Care Center Harley-Davidson Raffle is to raise $35,000 to enhance the facilities for the children and the staff.

Board member Bill Rosenberger is in his third year as a parent representative on the board and is chair of the fundraising campaign.

“Kiwanis Day Care Center has been serving Huntington for 85 years,” Rosenberger said. “It is the oldest and is recognized as the oldest, continuously operating childcare center in the state of West Virginia, and I have seen over the years the impact this place has had on my three kids emotionally, socially, educationally,”

Kiwanis is open from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

A drawing party will be on August 22nd at Charlie’s Harley Davidson to announce the three winners of the raffle event.
