The youth group of the German Family Society will sponsor a reverse raffle to help fund a trip to Europe to perform traditional German dances and songs.

The raffle will begin at 6 p.m. Feb. 28 at the club, 3871 Ranfield Rd. in Brimfield. The last number to be drawn of 150 tickets to be sold, will be the winner of the $4,000 grand prize reverse raffle. There will be cash prizes totaling more than $5,400 including intermittent cash prizes, instant bingo and a gift raffle.

The $100 admission ticket includes one main board raffle ticket, hors doeuvres, two dinners, desserts and an open bar. Additional main board tickets are available for $75 each.

The club has a kinder gruppe; childrens group from the age of 3 to 10 years; a junior youth group, ages 11 to 15 years; and the youth group. Many of these youth have been involved in the clubs activities from the time they were 3 years old and continue the tradition of dance and songs of their ancestors. They perform locally, as well as competing against other youth groups from across the United States and Canada. They have won two first place prizes back-to-back and have always finished in the top three places.

For further information, reservations, or presale tickets, call Henry or Sylvia Tonhaeuser at (330) 923-0665.
