The Purdue crew team will soon hold its annual “Rent-A-Rower” fund-raisers. For a $65 donation, you can have a rower work up to five hours. This is a great opportunity to prepare your home for winter, while assisting the crew team with its travel and equipment expenses.
In past years, we have had requests for a variety of jobs, such as painting, building fences, and cleaning out basements and garages—we also take care of those dirty windows and autumn leaves. If you have a particularly big job, please request more than one rower to tackle the work. We have rowers from many fields at Purdue who are glad to do your more specialized work. Just ask!
The team is made up of approximately 150 student-athletes, who are hard-working and dedicated individuals at the university. They are willing to put in this extra time and effort to help you while helping their team financially.
We plan to hold four Saturday fund-raisers, one per day on September 9, October 14, October 21, and November 11; each one starting at 9:00 AM and spanning until 2:00 PM. There is also an overflow day that we will hold at 9:00 AM on Saturday, November 18. Each rower requested is $65.00 and works up to five hours at your discretion.
