Lucky winner drawn in Lions Club raffle

Event is one of the club’s main fundraisers of the year

On Dec. 21, the Ashcroft and District Lions Club held the draw for their 50/50 raffle winner. All 4,000 tickets were sold, meaning that winner Barb Hillocks of Lillooet won $2,000 (and donated some of her winnings to the Cache Creek Volunteer Fire Department fundraiser).

The draw was made at Interior Savings Credit Union in Ashcroft, and ISCU account manager Tracy Andersen picked out the winning ticket.

The draw is one of the Lions’ largest fundraisers of the year.
