And the Winners Are…

The winners of our fundraising raffle have all been contacted. Congratulations to Tammy K., Steve B., and Karen W.!

Thanks go to the generous prize donations that made this raffle possible,

  • Harvey McFadden for donating the first place prize,
  • Crabby Joe’s in Hanover for the second place prize,
  • Lark’s Beeswax Candles for the third place prize.

Also a big thanks to all the volunteers who sold tickets, often in adverse weather conditions! Much appreciation goes to Food Basics in Hanover and the Owen Sound Farmers’ Market for providing space for us to sell tickets, and to both Crabby Joe’s and Holst Office Products for selling tickets on our behalf.

Finally, no fundraiser is possible without generous community support. Thanks to all who purchased tickets (helping us raise over $1200), and those who kept our volunteers company in the cold. Without you it wouldn’t have been possible!
