Eighteen beautiful baskets had been assembled by members, and each member purchased at least 20 tickets in the hopes of winning one of the baskets. In the end, three members each won two baskets, and one lucky member won four!
Monies raised totalled $423, which has gone to the 100 Mile District Hospice Palliative Care Society, and then the LA matched that amount to give to the local SPCA.
