And now the final five….

Disclaimer: Drawing will continue until 5 tickets remain. The owners of these 5 tickets may choose to split the $5,000 Grand Prize. All 5 ticket holders must agree to the split. If there is not complete agreement the drawing will continue. The remaining 4 ticket holders may choose to split, again all 4 must agree. Continue to draw until there is an agreement to split or a $5,000 grand prize winner is determined.

As it turned out …. one of the five finalists did not agree to split the grand prize. So the drawing continued. The next ticket drawn eliminated one of the five finalists who wanted to ‘split’ the prize. The second ticket drawn in the finale was one held by a well-known realtor, elected official, Club member and otherwise upstanding citizen of our community who did not want to split the prize.  Therefore, she was eliminated and the three remaining ticket holders then split the $5,000 three ways. 

Congratulations to Bob Braxton, Natalie Rouleau and Charles Kay.
