The winners of this year’s $10,000 raffle for Gordon Hall during last weekend’s Dexter Daze festival were announced by the Dexter Area Historical Society this week.
Dexter resident Shawn Pierrel was the grand prize winner in this year’s raffle.
Carol Jones, DAHS treasuer; Bev Hill, president; and board member Caryl Burke went to Pierrel’s place of employment Wednesday and presented the requisite comically large cardboard check to complete the handoff of his prize money.
Hill said that her contingent came with balloons and treats to further sweeten the check presentation, as well as thanked the community for their continued participation in the longstanding Dexter Daze raffle.
The second place winner is also a Dexterite, but has not signed a waiver to how their identity publicized as of publish, since they are on vacation, according to Hill.
The third place winner was Mike Nugent, who also received his check this week.
The second and third prize winners received $1,000 and $500, respectively.
