December 4th, 2012 saw the culmination of a very exciting fundraising effort to benefit Terry's House! The winning ticket of our first-ever motorcycle raffle was drawn!!!

Winning raffle ticket #0484 belonged to Mr. Kris Bartlebaugh who resides in Salinas, CA. He could not have been more thrilled to win this raffle and realize his dream of owning a Harley-Davidson! Kris and family had an opportunity to tour Terry's House when they came to Fresno to claim Kris' brand new motorcycle.

Mr. Cornelius Edwards, the second guest to ever stay at Terry's House, drove from his home in Atwater, CA to participate in this special event by sharing his story and drawing the winning raffle ticket from the drum that housed 3,412 tickets that were sold. Donors, friends and those who supported this raffle including hundreds of Community Regional Medical Center employees were present at the holiday luncheon and were able to witness the excitement of the drawing in person.

We are thrilled with the level of operational support this raffle generated for Terry's House! Our families will benefit daily from the generosity of this community and all of those who participated in our first motorcycle raffle. Thank you to all Community Medical employees, volunteers and physicians who supported this initiative.

At $20 per ticket. a total of $68,240 was raised to support the ongoing operations of Terry's House! We are so grateful to the many friends who helped sell tickets... they truly made this raffle a success!

Please enjoy the pictures and video below! Thanks again to everyone who ensured our success!!!
