Congratulations to the winners! Here is the youtube video of our drawing:



Note that in the drawing I only had 8 tickets but I made an error - my last prize was 50 acorns for 3 people, not for just one person, so there are actually ten winners total. Luckily, my software gives me tickets for the top 20 winners and then I only use the actual number. So I also have a #9 and #10 winner but we didn't show the reveal of those in the video. I guess my excuse for the oversight is that it's been 10 years since we did our last raffle! Hilarious!

Congrats to the winners:

Winner #1: @DaylilySLP

Oh my goodness! I won!! How sweet is that. I am thrilled.
A huge thanks to Dave and his family and for all the hours that they sink into this organization!
A tremendous thank to all the sponsors for without their generosity the raffle wouldn't be much of a raffle!
A special thank you for all those who are responsible for this great group, that includes all the admins and members too. It is a load of long hours behind the scenes.
I will be more then happy to get my acorns Dave at your earliest convenience! I recently used some acorns to start my second "oak forest" because from the mighty little acorn grows tremendous friendships, marvelous insights and a wonderful time for everyone who participates in the NGA! I tip my hat to you. Thank You!

Congratulations to all the winners. As always I consider myself a winner just to see those precious kids helping with the announcements. And now we have a little "raffle girl" helping the "raffle boys". I always enjoy their "piggy-toe" filing system. Hurray!

Congrats everyone! And a big thanks to all of the vendors and to Dave and clan. Thanks too goes to many generous NGA members for sharing acorns that they had squirreled away.

Time to keep earning acorns for the future raffles!

Happy gardening, y'all.
