Raffle Results

The $20,000 Raffle for Charitable Union (our first) is behind us now.  We want take a moment and thank everyone who supported the raffle in any way. We had lots of folks out there selling tickets, lots who purchased and many behind the scene folks who gave their time and energy to make this successful. All proceeds from this event will go directly to support our client services, “the journey out of poverty begins here.”

It’s always nice to pass on good news so the greatest gift we received was calling our four winners to let them know their ticket had been pulled for one of Early Bird Drawings: Cathy Compton who won on May 29; Janis Ludwig whose ticket was pulled on June 26th and Teresa Durham who won our final Early Bird Drawing on July 31st.

As we gathered for the final drawing on Monday night, August 31st our excitement and anticipation grew.  We had worked hard for this moment and learned much along the way. And with all our hard work behind us we pulled the final winning ticket #00264 and the winner was Aimee Hempeck from Brooklyn Park, Minnesota had won $20,000. That call was the nicest gift of all. What a wonderful surprise to share with someone. Congratulations to all our winners and we again want to thank everyone who purchased a ticket. Thank you and we appreciate your supporting the mission of Charitable Union.
