Announcing giveaway and prize winners is both lots of fun and a huge drag. It's so exciting to tell the person who got drawn that they won. But it's a bummer to let everyone else know their number didn't get picked.
In the case of our Stitch Home Alabama fundraising raffle, I feel like everyone who donated money deserves a gift. You guys are awesome. However, we started out with 5 prizes (well, 4 and then 5), and that is how many winners we're going to have.
90 people participated in the raffle and we assigned 334 tickets in order of the comments or emails' arrival in our inbox. Today, I let Random.org pick 5 numbers from the total of tickets. Here are the 5 picks in order, along with the winners' names!
Prize 1: Leslie Marsden, ticket #102
Prize 2: Judy Norris, ticket #202
Prize 3: Jennifer Roebuck, ticket #233
Prize 4: Ellen Baker, ticket #11
Prize 5: Katrina Hertzer, ticket #323
These 5 ladies have been contacted by email. We're working on getting them their prizes. We are so happy for them (and a little envious!). We hope they enjoy their winnings!
Thank you again so much to everyone who participated in the raffle. We raised $3,540 for tornado disaster relief!!
