And the Winners Are...
First of all, I want to "Thank You" for your participation in the Dr. Bill Jones Scholarship Silent Auction / Raffle. I heard so many wonderful comments from church members and GFCC parents and grandparents about your classroom baskets. Things like:
"They are so big and full of really great things."
"Such creativity -- I would have never thought to add that item, but it really makes the basket!"
"Parents really did a great job."
I also want to thank the teachers that assembled their own baskets, the classroom parents who assembled their baskets, and the Raffle Basket Committee (Yuwei Tsang and Amber Rohloff) for the great work done in getting the baskets looking so beautiful! You are the BEST!
Now . . . on to the Raffle Basket Results
All raffle basket ticket canisters were taped down and
locked up at the end of each day for safety.
On Wednesday, November 16, the raffle drawing began!
The GFBC Office Manager, Karen Burden, did not participate in the raffle and was chosen to draw the winning tickets.
The tickets were carefully dumped into a super large canister and shaken for several minutes before a ticket was drawn.
Mrs. Burden reached in (without looking) and pulled the winning tickets for each raffle basket.
The winning ticket was taped to a notebook next to the name of the basket.
Winners were then called, emailed, and/or personally notified.
In any drawing, there is a possibility that one individual may possibly win multiple times. Chances increase with the number of tickets purchased and the number of tickets stacked into a favorite basket. The rest is left up to "chance". . . or . . ."a luck of the draw."
