SCC 50/50 Raffle benefits Tri-Cities region
The Speedway Children's Charities 50/50 Raffle presented by Grand Home Furnishings is in the books with the winning ticket identified this past weekend.
SCC officials drew the winning raffle ticket (No. 2615) during the third quarter of the Pilot Flying J Battle at Bristol, the world's largest college football game. The winner, a resident of Kingsport, Tenn., will receive more than $80,000 with SCC also raising more than $80,000 for area children.
"We are so blessed and thankful for everyone who participated in the SCC 50/50 Raffle presented by Grand Home Furnishings," said Claudia Byrd, executive director for SCC. "This was an outstanding way to support local kids in the region and win a prize at the same time."
