Raffle hopefuls gathered at the Dugout Tuesday with high hopes of being the big winner. Ticket sales were brisk until the stroke of 6 p.m. when Foundation official Shane Spaulding opened the padlocked tumbler and drew Pam Shuck’s ticket and corresponding envelope #7, the 9 of Clubs. Not the jackpot winner but still garnering a $100 check for Shuck who was not present at the drawing. Additionally, last weeks’ winner, David Strachon came forward to collect his $100 from last weeks’ drawing.

The Jackpot continues to grow and the available numbers continue to shrink. Good news for those buying tickets this week. If your ticket is drawn and your chosen number on the envelope in the locked cabinet reveals the Ace of Diamonds you will be the BIG winner – 75% of the Jackpot if you are present and 60 % if you are not present. The Jackpot for the July 25 drawing will be $2,629. Good Luck! You could be our BIG WINNER!
