Thank you to everyone who contributed towards the raffle! So many people contributed asking to not even be entered in the drawing. Donations were given in amounts of $50 -$400 dollars and a total of $1200 was raised to help Rosie in Guatemala with her cleft palate surgeries. We are currently only $800 shy of having the total amount needed for all of Rosie's surgeries and I just want to thank each one who has contributed from the bottom of my heart. Rosie has already had her first surgery and is doing well.
I wrote the names of each entry on paper of equal size and folded the paper into fourths and dropped the names in a bowl. I then asked my husband who is not familiar with the contestants to reach in and pull a name out for me. The name drawn as the winner for the bull is
MELISSA UTTERBACK LEWIS
Congratulations, Melissa! I have never met Melissa but do know that her family operates a small farm in Red House, West Virginia. You can view her facebook page here.
In the event that Melissa has changed her mind about wanting the bull calf or is unable to follow through with the terms posted for accepting him, I did pick a second name from the bowl to be our runner up. If for any reason Melissa is not able to take the calf or meet the terms associated with the drawing, the runner up will be given the opportunity to get him. The second name drawn from the bowl was Tonya Harmon. Tonya also has a facebook page at this link.
Merry Christmas Everyone and thank you so much for your donations!
