Well folks, I’m sure you are all eager to know who won! But before we announce that, I would like to say that we sold more than 4,000 tickets … unbelievable! Tickets were sold to people living in nearly every state plus the Virgin Islands and Canada. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
We are currently up in Connecticut waiting for this baby to make his debut, and Sandy is also off island for a little vacation herself. So we decided to have someone who loves St. John as much as we do pull the winning ticket yesterday afternoon. His name is Russ Ballou and he held a pretty amazing fundraiser for the island last October. (Click here to read all about it and to watch a great vide0 he produced.) We agreed that he was the perfect person to help us out. So here is Russ, along with Mike Hedy of Joe’s Rum Hut, pulling the winner…
Congratulations to the winner! Oh, and by the way, the winner bought just one ticket. Amazing.
Again, thank you all so, so much! We promise the money raised will be put to good use, and we will keep you posted on that! Have a great day everyone!!
