With hopefuls standing by, the Homer Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center announced Dec. 10 that Homer resident Peggy Brown was the winner of the annual truck raffle.
Doug Waclawski, principal of Homer High School, won the ATV raffle.
Nyla Lightcap also was a winner, taking home $1,000 for selling the winning ticket to Brown.
When contacted by phone, Brown started screaming and asked if it was a joke, according to a press
release issued by the chamber. A bit more cool and calm, Waclawski said that “after all the times I’ve lost, it’s finally time I got to win.”
Brown has her choice of $25,000 in credit for a vehicle at Stanley Ford in Soldotna or $15,000 cash.
Waclawski can choose between a $6,000 spending spree at All Seasons Honda in Homer or $4,000 cash.
As of press time, neither had decided which prize to take.
