Fundraiser/Raffle Recap

First things first, I would like to thank each and every one of you for the support of my fundraising raffle. The kind words, sharing of the post, and number of tickets purchased all reinforced what I already knew. This is a really great community that I get to be a part of and I truly appreciate each of you! That being said, let's deal with the business first. All told, there were 28 total tickets sold. That equaled $140 to be donated directly to Chris and his family. I did encounter one little hiccup as I went to make the donation prior to writing this. I didn't realize that the only way to donate on GoFundMe is via credit card. That was not a feasible option for me and since I had all of the funds in my PayPal account, I asked Chris if I could donate to him that way.

Oh yeah, as an added bonus, today happens to be Delia's first Birthday! So, with this info, I had my way to donate.

...and there it goes! Quite honestly, the total surpassed what I had hoped for and I couldn't be happier!

Now, on to the raffle! Here is the list of entries(written in order of receiving them).

As per the rules that were laid out in the original post, the entire list was randomized eight times. Like so:

The big congrats(and the Cal Ripken auto) go out to Jon! Please email me(tim.trisomenc@gmail.com) your contact info Jon. I will be sure to get this mailed out to you this coming week. Thanks again for all of the support for this. I'll be getting back to a more regular posting schedule in the coming days. As always, thanks for reading!

    1. It may not be much consolation, but I have quite a large stack to send your way. I Think I'll plan to get it packed up and drop it off at the post office when I ship the Cal.

  2. Hey Tim. Great gesture on your part. Congrats to Jon.

  3. I forgot to get in on this, but I just hit the GoFundMe and dropped my donation.

    Big congrats to the winner, you lucky duck.

    1. Thanks for the contribution, Jeff. Sorry you missed out on the chance for Cal.
