The 7th Annual Amazing Raise was held on Put-in-Bay on Saturday, June 8, with the Washington Township Fire Department winning the benefit competition for Joyful Connections and the Ottawa County Family Advocacy Center’s CASA program. The 24 teams of four to six people raced around the island, much like the Amazing Race television show, solving clues and completing challenges to win the grand prize.
Winners this year were WTFD (Washington Township Fire Department). It was the team’s seventh year of competing and the first time they’ve won. Second place went to Pour Choice, with the Win or Lose, We Booze Team finishing third.
