Last year at the local St. Jude auction, I won a $750 video camera on a $5 ticket. Naturally, this year I have bought $325 worth of chances for all kinds of good things. Except for the $100 chance on a car, all the others are $5 or $10. I could possibly win a nordic track, a year's golf membership, John Deere mower, golf cart, utility cart, generator, touch screen computer, camera, 4 wheeler......lots of excellent stuff has been donated for this cause. I'm hoping for more good luck this year. I don't mind spending money on this because St. Jude is my favorite charity. Last year we raised more than 3/4 of a million dollars. That's unheard of for a town this size.
