Nut Club Donates $600,000 to Community


The money comes from the Fall Festival, Half-Pot, and other events

The West Side Nut Club is known for its Fall Festival - an event that helps dozens of Evansville area organizations raise money. WNIN’s Sarah Kuper has more on how the club gives back:

If you are wondering where the giant pile of cash raised by the West Side Nut Club’s popular “Half Pot” lottery drawing goes, the organization released a detailed list of recipients at its annual Founders Day celebration.

The Half-Pot money plus proceeds from other Nut Club events amounted to $600,000 going back to the community. West Side high schools and elementary schools, plus daycare centers received several thousand dollars each, plus nearly every EVSC school and some parochial schools were gifted money.

Housing and community non-profits received anywhere from $3000 to $20,000. The highest donation recipients are West Side high schools Reitz and Mater Dei. Each will receive $27,000.
