Rotary’s Win a Dream Condo raffle still open

The Rotary Club of Summit County’s on-going raffle just named another $1,000 winner in its bi-weekly cash drawings – Grand Junction resident Marsha Ansbro.

Ansbro, a grandmother of 11, entered the contest while visiting Summit, saying she always buys raffle tickets since they’re always for a good cause. She is going to spend the money on her grandchildren.

The raffle offers participants a chance to win a pretty significant prize: a million-dollar condo at the Grand Lodge at Peak 7. It culminates on Dec. 31, but up until that date, the Rotary is holding a bi-weekly cash drawing at its meetings. When a ticket is purchased, it goes into the mix for a $500 or $1,000 prize. Winners’ tickets go back into the drawing, keeping them in the running for even more cash and then the grand prize.

Through the bi-weekly cash drawings, the organization has already given away $4,500.

Tickets sales are going well so far, Judy LaPoint, Rotarian and condo raffle committee member said. They’ve had people purchasing from around the county and state and from as far away as Canada and England.

The Rotary has to sell 55,000 tickets to give away the condo. If they don’t sell that amount, they will split the cash profit of the raffle with the grand prize winner. So, even if the 55,000-ticket goal isn’t reached, there’s still a chance to win a lot of money.

Money raised goes to all the programs Rotary supports, in Summit and globally: the Rotary’s weekly community dinner – which has served 33,000 meals in the past few years – college scholarships, literacy programs, youth leadership training, troop support and disaster relief support, among others.

Tickets for the Rotary’s condo faffle are available online at The raffle is open to anyone all over the world. Tickets are on sale now and cost $49 for one, $99 for three and $299 for 10.
