On Monday, November 30, the long-anticipated results of the 2009 Free Drawing were revealed … Caelen and Ellery, daughters of Executive Director Geoff McQuilkin, pulled out 25 tickets from the thousands submitted. Twenty-five lucky people won prizes ranging from a Committee shopping spree to a wine tasting tour, original artwork to ski vacations, Patagonia clothing to sports equipment….

We’ll announce the winners in the Winter-Spring 2010 Newsletter, so watch for that list and be sure to send in your tickets again next year for a chance to win!
