And the grand prize winner of our 20th Annual Winner’s Choice Drawing is…
C. David Hemp from Millville, CA
After much consideration, Dr. Hemp and his wife chose the $50K CASH!
Our other cash prize winners are as follows:
$5,000 – Scott Chrisman, Palm Desert
$3,500 – Mike Bilek, Henderson, NV
$2,500 – Frank Munoz, Los Angeles (who generously donated his winnings back to the 11-99 Foundation – thanks, Frank!)
$1,500 – Joe Marchini, Le Grande/Chowchilla (who generously donated his winnings back to the 11-99 Foundation – thanks, Joe!)
Thank you again to everyone who entered the drawing or sent in a donation! The response this year was incredible. In total, we sold 1,927 tickets, with an additional $1,725 in donations, for a GRAND TOTAL of $194,425!
These critical fundraising dollars will help us continue our work of providing CHP employees and their families with emergency and death benefits, and scholarships to their children in the coming year.
We thank you for your ongoing support of the CHP 11-99 Foundation and the CHP families we serve.
*NOTE: Each year, entrants from the year prior are mailed BLUE numbered tickets with an entry form (the same quantity they purchased the previous year) as a convenient way to once again enter the drawing. It’s also our way of separating and tracking past participants in our mailing list. Those who choose to enter again may fill out & return the entry form & tickets they were sent, keeping their portion of the BLUE numbered ticket stubs. If you filled out an entry form via PDF or called in, you were mailed RED numbered ticket stubs. This is why we sometimes indicate BLUE or RED + ticket # when the winners are randomly drawn and announced, as there may be duplicate numbers in the blue or red tickets. (Ticket numbers themselves are irrelevant other than for our record-keeping and to show a number sequence out of the max number of tickets we sell, and have no impact on chances in the drawing. Winning tickets each have the winner’s name on them in addition to a ticket number.)
