This was received by Sara Garcia after the money raffle. Please take a second to read this, it is pretty amusing.
I received a telephone call last night from a representative (Billy Jo?) of the ASFFA informing me that I had won 2nd prize in the recent Money Raffle held by the ASFFA. My wife took the call and thought it was my son pulling a trick on us since we had all been on a Disney cruise to Alaska in August. Finally she relented and did call me to the phone as requested. When I answered, and heard ASFFA, I remembered buying the tickets and not telling my wife I had them. I forgot which stop I purchased them at (Skagway or Juneau) but did have the stubs to show her last night (Sunday 9/29/2013). Being from Ohio and realizing that this raffle is statewide in Alaska I did not feel that I had much chance of winning but WOW!
When I was talking to the young lady and young man I purchased the tickets from I did mention that I felt like it was a good donation and asked how do I know if I win? They responded with You only need your phone number and we will contact you. (My wife was in the store behind me so she did not know I had done this).
Looking forward to receiving my award as it is most welcome right now and will be put to good use and I am sure the other raffle proceeds will be used effectively by your organization. I certainly wish we had been there in person as the drawing was held (for a Photo Op) and to see the look on the face of the 1st prize winner.
Please pass this on to the young lady and gentleman who sold me the ticket and also to the person who made the delightful telephone call on September 29, 2013!
Lastly, is it possible to get a list of the winners and the state they were from?
**Also if need I could e-mail a scan of the winning ticket stub. (I am at work now and the stub is at home)**
