Chatham’s Ryan Craig has more than 89,000 reasons to smile.
The local man won more than $89,000 in the 50/50 draw at the 2018 International Plowing Match & Rural Expo recently.
Big Brothers, Big Sisters ran the raffle and receive the other half of the funds.
Maple City Marine “seeded” the raffle with a $10,000 donation to get it started. Despite the rainy weather on a couple of days, the last day was beautiful and the crowds were huge, said Darrin Canniff, one of the event chairs.
Nan Stuckey, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters, wants to thank everyone who bought a 50/50 ticket.
“We really appreciate the support and the kids in our local mentoring programs will too,” she said in a media release.
Stuckey also thanked the Rules, owners of Maple City Marine, for their generosity and the more than 50 volunteer sellers who learned how to use portable lottery ticket machines to make the selling process smoother and faster.
