DECISIONS, DECISIONS. Shari Bigelow, second from left, had the winning ticket last Saturday at the North Shore Rotary Fish Fry and Raffle, and had her choice of a new Toyota Avalon auto or Toyota Tundra pick-up truck, and was leaning toward the truck. The vehicles were provided by Community Toyota of Baytown. With the winner is Rotarian Jim Mills of Pineforest Jewelry, at center her husband Randall Rojas, and at right North Shore Rotary Fish Fry chairwoman Allatia Harris. Hundreds attended the annual Catfish Fry and Crawfish Boil at the North Shore Rotary pavilion on Wallisville.

In addition to the raffle, Rotarians also raised money from the sale of lunches, a live auction, and a silent auction, as well as donations of support from sponsors such as San Jacinto College, SanJac Education Foundation, Community Toyota/Kia/Honda, Galena Park ISD Education Foundation, and 18 other corporate or individual sponsors.

This annual event of the source of funds for the club’s support of many worthwhile projects in the North Shore community, and student scholarships, and international work through the Rotary International Foundation. The preliminary estimate is that the club raised about $400,000 at this event.
