On June 30th we had the drawing for “50/50 Raffle.” Total ticket sales amounted to $1,585.00. That amount was then divided in half, so the monastery got $792, and the three winners got, respectively, 75% of $792; 15% of $792; and 10% of $792. One hundred seventy tickets were sold.

First Place winner: Ticket#0083 D.A. of Durango, CO ($595)

Second place winner:Ticket#0095 D.S. of Denver, CO ($118)

Third Place winner:Ticket#0020 V.M. of Austin, TX ($79)

Congratulations to the three winners. Thanks to all who participated!
