Come see for yourself.
On Saturday, September 30th at 6 pm, ticket number 182 was pulled out of the drum, and Julie Hamel of New Hartford won Ruby, the 2017 Dodge Challenger R/T.
We have so many people to thank! The list will grow in the coming days.
This huge fundraising effort by the Friends of the Bakerville Library—our 6th annual—would not be possible without our sponsors:
First of all, Sullivan Automotive. Kevin Sullivan and Bill Reudgen have extended us every courtesy over the last five years and enabled us to take Ruby wherever she needed to go, cleaning her up and filling her with gas, answering our questions and allowing us to pay for her out of the raffle proceeds.
Best Oil in Waterbury has been a sponsor for years. They allowed us to display Ruby, and sold tickets.
Dunkin' Donuts has been a faithful sponsor through the years.
Jensen Mechanical in New Hartford has been a sponsor for years, and this year they allowed us to display Ruby.
Milo's Apple House/Scrubby's Car Wash both allowed us to display Ruby at their busy corner, and also sold tickets. We want especially to thank Buddy and Gloria Milo for allowing us to use their corner as a base of operations for the last two weeks.
M.E. Carroll & Sons (Jed and Mike, and often Jed's boys) have not only been sponsors (against all odds), but also have helped and continue to help the library in many ways, far beyond the call of duty.
Union Savings Bank both allowed us to display Ruby at their busy corner, and also sold tickets.
Peter Bakker Insurance has been a faithful sponsor through the years.
Write Way Signs and Designs in Torrington has helped us with the car wrap for many years, and this year they are also a sponsor.
Petricone's Pharmacy in Torrington is a new sponsor this year.
Torrington Savings Bank is our event sponsor, and this year they allowed us to display Ruby as well.
And thanks to OldCarRaffle.com for listing us!
Thanks to everyone who bought tickets. Everyone wins by helping this historic library, just because it is a library, and because it is often the hub of our community.
Thank you very much to Arnie Goldstein, who kept track of all the tickets for four (plus) months, and to his wife Pat Goldstein, for putting up with it (and us) all.
