On Monday, June 6, 2022, at 7 pm, Charitable Gambling Manager Wendy Busch dropped 50 raffle balls into an electric lottery machine at White Bear Lake’s Manitou Grill. Meanwhile, on the opposite side of the St. Croix River, golfers attending Merrick’s Charity Golf Scramble watched the mixing balls via Zoom, anxiously waiting to get a glimpse of the winning number. After all, many had purchased one of the 25 raffle tickets sold, and the winner would receive a trip for four to Pebble Beach, the unanimously rated no. 1 public golf course in the country.

After tremendous suspense, the winning number was revealed, and we are proud to announce that the winning ticket was sold to Dustin Abrahamson of Blue Sky Vitamin. Congratulations, Dustin, and many thanks to all who entered to win a chance at this once in a lifetime opportunity. Thanks to your participation, we raised $25,000 toward our programs for adults with disabilities, and we can’t thank you enough.
