Rotary raffle proceeds will benefit Bresnay Field upgrades in Lincoln

White Oak Rotary is raffling two tickets to see the Pittsburgh Penguins play the Chicago Blackhawks at Soldier Field in Chicago on March 1 as part of the NHL Stadium Series.

Proceeds will go toward renovating Bresnay Field in Lincoln. Rotary Club member Dan Lyons previously secured a grant from the Western Pennsylvania district of the Rotary to begin work on the aging field, but the raffle will help cover additional financing.

Raffle tickets are $20 and the prize includes an all-inclusive trip to the game including round-trip air fare; two nights at the Westin Chicago; two club level, side-ice seats at the game; $500 cash; admission to the Friday welcome reception at the Westin; admission to the official Penguins pre-game hospitality event hosted by former Penguins greats; round-trip transportation to and from Soldier Field; and an official game souvenir and program.

The winner will be chosen by the three-digit Pennsylvania lottery number drawn at 7 p.m. on Feb. 21.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
