Last night was awesome.
Yesterday, the Fire Dept had a draw down, which basically, you buy a raffle ticket, (we sold them for $50, with 2 catered meals.). The 1st, 25th, 50th, and 75th person drawn gets $100, and in between that, random people that were drawn got a door prize. Anyways, we only sold 99 of the 100 tickets. When we had 5 tickets left to be drawn, they auctioned off the 100th ticket. Once that was sold, they pulled one raffle and removed them. The 4 ticket holders had to decide if they wanted to split the $1,500 or draw. If one of them says draw, then they draw. It came down to 2 ppl. They split it. But it was fun.
Anyways, it was a good day, because my husband came home early, with something I’ve been wanting for a long while!!! A Keurig machine. He also got a ton of coffee for it and hot cocoa. And creamer, since we were out. It was like an early Christmas present. Then after that, we went to the draw down. He ended up doing parking for a while, but then the whistle and everyone’s pagers went off. A huge structure fire. No one left, since we had a community event going on. They started the draw down, husband kept saying “watch, I’m going to be the first name drawn!”. They pull a name, open the container, and read his name. We won the first $100!! It was awesome. And good food, good fun.
