In case you haven't heard by now, Sheffield Kiwanis which serves nine towns in southern Berkshire County including Alford, Egremont, Great Barrington, Monterey, Mount Washington, New Marlborough, Sheffield, Stockbridge and West Stockbridge will be drawing the winners in the club's annual scholarship raffle.

Tells Me More About Sheffield Kiwanis' Scholarship Raffle?

For over 20 years, Sheffield Kiwanis has hosted a scholarship raffle by way of offering a choice grand prize of either a brand new pickup truck or $20,000 cash. The money raised goes directly into the club's scholarship fund which is used to support local southern Berkshire County youth who are planning on continuing with their education beyond high school. However, this year, as is the case with many items, there's a shortage of vehicle availability. As a result, Sheffield Kiwanis has increased the grand prize by $5,000 which means the winner will walk away with $25,000 cash. There's a second prize of $1,500 and the third prize is $500. This year's raffle has been dubbed the 'No Truck, Truck Raffle.'
