And the winners are…

The drawing for the W&L Subaru/Everyone’s Playground raffle took place yesterday at the W&L dealership showroom and the winners are — in order of the way they were drawn:

1. Taste of the NFL autographed helmet: Art Bowen
2. Dinner for four at Isabella’s Ristorante: Tom Clark
3. Framed autographed photo of Jack Ham, Jack Lambert and Andy Russell: Tiziana Albert
4. Use of a certified pre-owned Subaru: Tom Bucher
5. Framed Super Bowl Tickets Display: Scott Shaffer

CONGRATULATIONS to the winners and SINCERE THANK AND APPRECIATION to all who sponsored a ticket and helped raise more than $8000 for Everyone’s Playground Comfort Station fund drive. To each, your support helps the next phase of the Playground by adding a comfort station facility for those with special needs, other disabilities or cognitive challenges. Again, we say THANK YOU.

We are especially grateful to our Event Co-Chairs, Andy Long and Meghan Balum of W&L Subaru. It was great fun working with them and, I believe, driving them a little crazy but their efforts resulted in a super success.

Thanks, also, to our prize donors: W&L Subaru, Isabella’s Ristorante (Domenico Napoli) and Andy and Cindy Russell for allowing me to raid Andy’s memorabilia room. Last, but certainly not least, to Simona Lovik and Russ Fairchild, Chair and Vice Chair of the Andy Russell Charitable Foundation Central PA Region Advisory Council, an enormous THANK YOU for your support, encouragement and generosity. What a team it’s my privilege with whom to be associated. You each are the best.

Thanks to all who helped with the raffle — you are truly making a difference in the lives of those who benefit from the availability of Everyone’s Playground. Best wishes and to all a very, very Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
