After ten cranks of the raffle drum, Ross and Laurie Burk ended up winners of the Rotary Club of Haliburton’s annual car lottery.
At 8 p.m. sharp on August 4, Rotary president Heather Phillips and past president Ted Brandon picked the winning ticket, sold to the Burks by Andrew Hodgson — the third winning ticket the Rotarian has sold.
The couple opted to pass up the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro in favour of $33,000 in cash, which they’ll use to buy a new car.
The Burks estimate they’ve bought Rotary club raffle tickets for 37 years.
The raffle was a sell-out, raising $64,963.22 for the Rotary club’s work in the community.
