Historical Society Raffle Winners Drawn

Around Puhoi 2014 045

Sheryll Titford, one of the committee members whose raffle ticket sales efforts recently added $6000 to the Puhoi Historical Society’s museum building fund bank account. With ticket number 1697, the Titford family were the grand first prize winners of the Christmas raffle, drawn at the society’s December 10 party.

The nine other prize winners, in order from second to tenth,  were the holders of ticket numbers 1033, 1710, 1751, 1988, 1674,1471,1503, 1769 and 1849.

Prizewinners ranged from Puhoi to North Shore and Waiheke Island, with a good number from the local area, said society president Sue Tisdall. “And the number of sponsors -43 – was amazing.”
