Saturday evening, August 23rd, the annual auto giveaway was held by the Pickens County Chamber of Commerce. Denise Duncan, President of the Pickens County Chamber was very excited to let us know it was the 9th Auto Give Away since she began her career with the Chamber and only one other time had they ever sold all 500 tickets prior to the event.
Saturday night anxious ticket holders gathered in anticipation of the announcement of the winner. Waiting with excitement until the last ball was drawn. The winning ball belonged to one of the 500 who purchased their tickets and were entered to win one of several door prizes or the GRAND PRIZE of $20,000 or a new Ford (courtesy of Shottenkirk Ford of Jasper) or a new Chevrolet (courtesy of Day’s Chevrolet of Jasper)!
The event is a lot of fun and there were several giveaways in the reverse raffle and finally the big winner was announced. The winning ticket belonged to Junktiques Jasper and no one was present, which was not necessary to win. Jennifer Galligan Walked away with the $500 cash for second place.
CONGRATULATIONS to Junktiques Jasper for having the winning ticket. They chose to take the $20,000 and the Chamber presented them the check this afternoon, August 24th.
The Pickens County Chamber of Commerce wanted to give a special thank you to Shottenkirk Ford of Jasper, Day’s Chevrolet of Jasper, the Board of Directors, and every volunteer and others involved for making it such a special event.
