Our first ever $50K Giveaway is officially in the books, and it was a big success! Thanks to our generous donors from all over north Mississippi -- and even across the U.S. -- we sold a total of 2,458 tickets. That's over $245,000 raised!
On February 14, we drew our winner live on WTVA 9 News, and if you haven't already heard, the lucky recipient of $50,000 is
Courtney Cowley of Guntown
She was pretty stunned when we called her
to let her know. Congratulations, Courtney! We can't wait to hear what you do with the money.
There was also another big winner in the giveaway. We offered a $10,000 incentive to our partner agencies to help us sell tickets. Each agency got a unique promo code that ticket buyers could put in during the purchase and give credit to that agency for their ticket. The agency who sold the most tickets would receive $10,000.
Today we presented the award to the agency that sold the most tickets! Congratulations to Sanctuary Hospice!
