Vermont Lions Clubs District 45
On Saturday night, November 3rd, approximately 145 Lions, Leos, family, friends and guests gathered at the Hampton Inn, Colchester for the 2018 version of the District 45 LCIF Super Raffle.
Over $12,000.00 cash and prizes were up for capture to the 110 ticket holders, with the grand prize being $1,500.
The evening started off with some lively entertainment from Peter MacFarlane. Thanks to PDG Betsy MaGee for lining up this ‘special treat’ for attendees. Saw some interesting ‘dancing’ and ‘jigging’. Some good food was on hand along with some friendly ‘chit-chat’ amongst those in attendance.
After an hour and a half of Lion Carmelita Belisle’s ‘magic fingers’ picking the numbers out of ‘bag’, it came down to three numbers: Lion Gary Russell of the Vergennes Lions Club, Laberge Insurance Agency (friends of Middlebury Lions) and Stephen and Connie Weston (friends of Jericho-Underhill Lions Club) to determine how the last 3 prizes will be distributed. After an agony piece of time (actually about 30 seconds), the last 3 entrants decided to split the cash winnings. Each won $780.00.
So on behalf of the LCIF Super Raffle committee, we would like to say ‘thank you’ to all those who purchased tickets, but more importantly all the business and individuals who donated prizes (see list). Please support those business’s who support Lions.
See all in 2019!!!!!
