Tiffany (Eagan) Regenstein, the daughter of the late Rick Eagan, is hoping for a good turnout on Sept. 9 for a Quarter Raffle being held in her father’s honor.
“This quarter raffle will be held at the Ripley Life Squad,” Regenstein said. “The doors will open at 6:15 and the raffle will begin at 7 p.m. Food and drinks will be available.
“Proceeds from this event will be used for the Rick Eagan Scholarship fund which is already responsible for presenting eight scholarships to high school students.”
In 2013 two scholarships were awarded, in 2014 one scholarship was award, in 2015 four more scholarships were awarded and one was awarded this year.
Eagan was a Brown County Commissioner at the time of his death in 2012.
“Dad was always a very generous man and gave back to his community in so many ways,” Regenstein said. “this scholarship fund is a way for him to continue giving back.
“We really want to continue this scholarship fund in dad’s name, which is only made possible because of the kind and generous donations from this community.
“There is currently a beautiful plaque hanging in the hallway of the Ripley High School hallway near the office with Dad’s picture on it and the names of all the scholarship winners.
“We want to invite everyone to come out Friday, Sept 9, to join in the fun. Anyone unable to attend can make a donation at any 5/3 Bank location.”
