THIS STORY IS PRESENTED IN PART BY DRAKE DENTISTRY
Tuesday’s edition of WIZS’ Town Talk featured the “Shop With A Cop” raffle winner announcement recorded at 10 a.m. this morning at Sadie’s Coffee Corner in downtown Henderson.
This annual event is sponsored by the Henderson Police Department, Vance County Sheriff’s Office, Henderson-Vance County Chamber of Commerce and Maria Parham Health. This year’s fundraiser will provide local law enforcement with $5,000 to take 40-45 disadvantaged youth Christmas shopping at Walmart later this month.
Participating youth are selected by the Vance County Department of Social Services each year through a referral process. DSS partners with local law enforcement and monetarily assists Shop With A Cop to help make this experience a reality for the children it serves.
Changing up the fundraising format this year, 180 “envelope” tickets with various dollar amounts were sold. The higher the dollar amount on the envelope, the higher the potential raffle prize money for donors. Cash prizes included a drawing for $200, $500, $1,000 and $2,000.
The Chamber was happy to announce, thanks to the generous support of the community, all 180 tickets were sold and the 2019 fundraising goal was met.
Names were drawn at random and the raffle winners were:
$200 – Lauren B. Roberson
$500 – Alice Sallins
$1,000 – Michael Waters
$2,000 – Dr. William Wooten
