Opportunities to enter the drawing will take place from December 5th through December 21st

Wisconsin Rapids, WI – The Wisconsin Rapids Rafters are to hold the first ever “Rosco’s Holiday Drawing”. Put together by one of the most creative minds in sports, Rosco P. Rafter just might have out done himself with this one. Instead of gifting the following fan package to everyone in the Greater Wisconsin Rapids area like Rosco wanted, to prevent going out of business, the Rafters have limited his idea to one fan. The following fan package will be given to one lucky fan on December 28th.

  • NWL TV subscription to watch all 72 Rafters games during the 2019 season
  • Lunch with GM Andy Francis, the Rafters Field Manager, and your favorite 2019 Rafters player
  • 1 Pre-game BP session with the Rafters in 2019
  • 1 framed, autographed photo of your favorite 2019 Rafter player
  • 20 Tickets to one date in the Point Craft River for you and all your family and friends
  • 1 autographed baseball from the 2016 Championship Team
  • 2 tickets to the Rafters 2019 Hot Stove Event on January 10th, 2019
