This year, 1,000 tickets were sold but only four winners were drawn for the Castlegar Selkirk Lions Club raffle.

On December 5, members of the Lions Club set up a tumbler and called Mayor Lawrence Chernoff down to pull the names of local residents who entered the contest.

The winners were contacted that night and have since received their prizes.

First prize was a $1,000 gift certificate from Safeway and was awarded to Geri-Lynn Rempel of Castlegar.

Second prize was a $500 gift certificate from Kootenay Market and went to Peggy Offin of Castlegar.

Alan Sherbbitoff of Castlegar  won the third prize of $250 cash.

Rob Conkin of Castlegar received the fourth prize of $250 cash.

The remaining $2,500 raised from the raffle tickets will go towards various projects sponsored by the Lions Club in January.
