Good things come to those who wait. Truer words couldn’t describe New Hamburg’s Freda Klassen better.
Klassen, a Rangers season ticket holder, held the winning number in the inaugural Rangers Reach Community Impact 50/50 Raffle and recently stopped by to collect her cheque for $9612.00
The first Rangers Reach Community Impact 50/50 Raffle wrapped up in mid-October and was a huge success. Not only did one lucky winner collect the grand prize jackpot, it raised much needed funds for four great community charity partners. The benficiaries of the draw were the Canadian Mental Health Association of Waterloo Wellington, Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region, House of Friendship and The Food Bank of Watelroo Region.
Klassen purchased her ticket for the raffle because of the community support component. During these pandemic times she acknowledged that there is a greater need for charities to receive support in our community. As for what she plans to do with the money, first on the agenda was to purchase some new pots. She also plans to continue her support of a community of abandoned children in Africa as well as share some of the winnings with her three sons.
In addition to the big jackpot prize, Rustico Kitchen and Bar were proud sponsors of the draw and provided 5 – $ 100 Gift Cards as consolation prizes.
All of the winners can be found on the Rangers Reach Winning Numbers page.
Congratulations Freda, for making an impact in our community and beyond!
