Great food, friendly place and our raffle every Wednesday night. Jackpot is growing. Keep an eye on the Jack of Spades page of this website for the cards chosen and to see if there has been a winner.
This raffle will be over 54 weeks commencing September 5, 2012 and run to September 22, 2013. 54 security envelopes will be filled with a card a piece, and numbered 1 thru 54, then shuffled and placed in a locked windowed case.
Raffle ticket will be sold for $1.00 a piece. These tickets will be placed in a drum and one ticket will be drawn every Wednesday @ 9:00pm, at Bentley’s Roadhouse. On the ticket there will be a space for the purchaser to chose an envelope number. The chosen ticket will indicate which envelope will be opened for that night’s drawing.
