Steve Aie won the 50/50 draw.

The Christmas Hampers committee and the food bank will each receive $1,000; there will be two $1,000 scholarships for DSCS grads; and funds will go to equipment for the Cache Creek dog park.

Prizes for the raffle were donated by Wyatt McMurray; the Vancouver Canucks hockey club; Jo Petty; Historic Hat Creek; Stan Aie; the Brownstone Restaurant; Western Canada Theatre Company; BA Brewmaster; the Kamloops Blazers; and Ashcroft Home Hardware.

The Lions would like to thank Interior Savings Credit Union, Safety Mart Foods, and the Cache Creek Post Office for allowing them to sell tickets on their premises; and a big thank you to all who supported the raffle and purchased 50/50 tickets.
